Cancer research through clinical trials help discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. At UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial we actively explore the possibilities, looking carefully and thoroughly while searching for innovative methods and treatments to address the needs of people living with and fighting cancer. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care to all of our patients and that includes offering groundbreaking treatments before they are widely available. The Promise of Hope event helps support our expanding world renowned cancer research and at any given time, nearly 60 clinical trials which include, but are not limited to the following focal areas:
- Head and neck
- Multiple Myeloma
- Solid Tumors
Participate in a Cancer Clinical Trial
Clinical trials are research studies involving people. Some trials test the safety and effectiveness of new cancer treatments. Others may test new procedures or approaches for cancer screening or prevention. Clinical trials follow very detailed and strict procedures for administering the new treatment or procedure and measuring its effects (both good and bad) on patients, compared to the standard approach. Clinical trials help improve existing treatment options for patients.
All improvements in cancer care were made possible because of clinical trials
