Clinical Trials for Spine Tumors

As a patient at Memorial Sloan Kettering, you may be able to participate in a clinical research study, also known as a clinical trial. In a clinical trial, doctors evaluate a new therapy or a therapy combination to determine whether it is more effective than the current best approaches. A clinical trial can also give your treatment team information about your current plan of care.

Nearly every cancer treatment available today exists because of a clinical trial. For every trial, the goal is the same: to provide long-term disease-free survival.

The decision to participate in a clinical trial is entirely up to you. Regardless of whether you receive standard treatment or therapy through a clinical trial, you will benefit from Memorial Sloan Kettering’s ongoing commitment to excellence in patient care.
