"Clinical trials are research studies that improve our knowledge of cancer." - Jeffrey Hoy, M.D., Hematologist/Medical Oncologist
Clinical research plays a vital role in the war on cancer. Through research we discover new and better ways to fight this disease, improve the quality of life for patients, and ultimately one day, to prevent cancer. Research studies, also called clinical trials or protocols, help develop better treatments to improve survival, understand how cancer grows and manage side effects of treatment to improve quality of life.
Pearlman offers clinical trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute as well as pharmaceutical companies.
