Steward® Centers for Cancer Care Clinical TrialsAccess to the latest cancer research treatments

Clinical trials, also known as clinical studies, are one of the most effective ways that doctors are able to improve health care. These studies look at new ways of treating diseases or conditions, such as cancer, as well as examining new combinations of existing drugs. While these trials are a necessary step on a new medication's road to public availability, they can also help patients who participate by providing them with the first benefits of a new approach or medication.

Steward® Centers for Cancer Care partners with various well-renowned cancer facilities to offer patients access to hundreds of the newest treatments through national clinical trials available through the National Cancer Institute and its clinical trails cooperative groups - Southwestern Oncology Group (SWOG) and Cancer Trails Support Unit (CTSU), Brigham and Women’s Cancer Care, and other national cooperative groups.

St. Elizabeth's Medical Center is also affiliated with Dana-Farber Community Cancer Care. Through this affiliation, eligible Steward patients can be sent to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for trials that are not offered at their local hospital.
