Presence Resurrection Medical Center integrates translational research into clinical practice by offering access to new treatment and/or advanced medical discoveries through our Clinical Trials Program. Clinical trials are studies that evaluate the effectiveness of new drugs, diagnostic tests and treatment strategies, and increase scientific understanding of a wide variety of diseases.
The different types of clinical trials are:
- Treatment trials, which test new drugs, medical devices, medical procedures, or combinations of treatments
- Prevention trials, which look for better ways to prevent diseases through medicines, vaccines, vitamins, minerals, or lifestyle changes
- Screening trials, which look for new ways to test for the presence of a disease or health condition
- Quality of life trials, which explore ways to improve comfort and quality of life for chronically ill individuals
Through our participation in the National Cancer Institute (NCI) National Cancer Trials Network (NTCN) oncologists bring cancer patients advanced medicine by offering clinical trials covering a wide range of tumor sites including but not limited to breast, colon, lung, kidney and prostate cancers.
The development of more effective cancer treatments requires that new and innovative therapies be evaluated with cancer patients. Each clinical trial is designed to find new or better ways to treat cancer patients. Clinical trials are extremely important to cancer patients, who may have exhausted all other forms of treatment, yet still have active disease. Patients can choose to voluntarily participate in studies offering new treatments not yet available to the general population.
Patients in clinical trials are monitored closely by physicians and other research team members. In addition, research patients' safety is monitored by both the study's sponsor and the PRMC Institutional Review Board (IRB), a group of people who review research to protect patient rights and welfare.
If you would like more information about clinical trials offered at Presence Resurrection Medical Center, please call the Clinical Research Office at 773-594-7821.
