The Stephenson Cancer Center is a nationally recognized leader in conducting clinical trials research for new cancer therapies. The Stephenson Cancer Center annually ranks among the top two cancer centers in the nation for the number of patients participating in National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical treatment trials.
One in three patients at the Stephenson chooses to participate in a clinical trial. By participating in trials, patients not only receive the latest treatment options available, they are taking a active role in discovering cancer breakthroughs.
Participation also ensures that patients receive the highest standard of care available anywhere. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) - which develops treatment guidelines for cancer - states the best management for any patient with cancer is in a clinical trial.
