Clinical trials are critical to the advancements in cancer treatments. Although significant progress has been made in early diagnosis of cancer and in cancer treatment, there continues to be a large unmet need and many unanswered questions for many types of cancers. Clinical trials provide patients with access to emerging therapies while also helping to provide data needed to improve cancer care and survival overall.


Access to new treatment protocols and drugs for people who have been diagnosed with certain types of cancer.

 

Nationally, approximately 2-4% of cancer patients participate in clinical trials. At HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers, we have enrolled from 13% to 21% of patients in clinical trials annually over the past five years. This is due to the large number of clinical trial opportunities we offer, along with our oncologists’ unwavering commitment to provide patients with the most advanced options available.

 

Prevention studies to help people remain cancer free.

 

We continually strive at being a national leader in improving cancer care for all patients. The HSHS St. Vincent Cancer Research Institute and medical and radiation oncology physicians at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers have recently received awards from the national Cancer Institute for their exceptional efforts in enrolling qualified patients in cancer clinical trials. 


Multiple locations to receive cancer clinical trials.

 

We are committed to reducing the burden of travel for patients. Each week, our oncologists travel to regional communities who are part of our HSHS St. Vincent Cancer Collaborative to help deliver high quality cancer care, at a location close to home.
