Cancer Clinical Trials
Western Suburbs Cancer Clinical Trials
If you or someone you love is facing cancer, clinical trials may provide an alternative. Northwestern Medicine offers clinical studies right in your community for a wide variety of types and stages of cancer. These research studies are designed to test new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent cancer, as well as to manage symptoms and side effects of the disease.
Clinical trials have played an important role in the fight against cancer. They are the only scientific way to prove whether a new treatment works better than current treatments. Most of the approaches that doctors use to treat cancer today would never have become available without clinical trials.
