Breast Cancer: Our Clinical Trials

You may be offered the opportunity to take part in a clinical trial at some point during your treatment. Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new treatment approaches for diseases. In some cases, a study may give you access to new therapies that are not yet readily available. Clinical trials may also be used to compare diagnostic tests, prevention strategies, or other aspects of care for cancer patients. Learn more about clinical trials.
