CBCCA is dedicated to the continual improvement of cancer care — from prevention to treatment through recovery and beyond. Which is why we firmly believe in advanced clinical trials.
Clinical trials are carefully designed and managed scientific studies. These trials test new medical therapies (medications, devices, etc.) and their effectiveness in the prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Clinical trials allow for the evaluation of all medical therapies, devices and techniques designed for human use. Without clinical trials, new drugs and treatments for cancer would not be investigated, get approved or be available for patients.
With the constant evolution and advancement of cancer treatments, new methods and medications are always in development. They provide cancer patients and their families with real hope for improvement, a higher quality of life, and, in many cases, a longer life. Other reasons to consider enrolling in a clinical trial include:
Clinical trials give cancer patients new hope. Our oncologists at CBCCA will prioritize your wellness and safety above all else. Our experience in conducting and participating in successful clinical trials begins by developing an individual plan. We work with local physicians to collect your complete medical history and form a treatment plan or protocol. Your treatment plan will contain information on the purpose of the trial, the drugs involved, medical tests to be performed, possible side effects, and some statistics about other people in the clinical trial.
At CBCCA, we have the knowledge and expertise to assure the highest quality of care, and we strive to make innovative treatments and community-based, personalized care as accessible as possible to our beloved Carolina community.
