Memorial Sloan Kettering experts discuss what you should know about clinical trials.
Clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center may give you access to new therapies that aren’t widely available. These research studies evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new ways to diagnose and treat primary brain tumors. They can also give your treatment team information about your current plan of care.
Because doctors from different disciplines work together closely through our collaborative Brain Tumor Center, many of our clinical trials combine different treatment approaches, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy. These aggressive approaches show promise for improving the treatment of many types of brain tumors.
As a member of the North American Brain Tumor Coalition, we offer qualified patients access to several clinical trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.
