Breast Cancer Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are research studies that people can volunteer for to help research scientists find new treatments and cures for diseases. Clinical trials provide treatment or medications that are new and not yet available to the general public. Cancer clinical trials are designed to answer scientific questions and test new ways to:
- Treat cancer
- Find and diagnose cancer
- Prevent cancer
- Manage symptoms of cancer or side effects from its treatment
The results of these research studies give healthcare providers the information needed to improve the way cancer is treated.
There are a variety of clinical trials available for breast cancer at OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. You may qualify to participate in a research study depending on your particular type and stage of breast cancer, health status, or your history of previous treatments. To learn if you are eligible for a breast cancer study, talk to your doctor or contact the person in charge of the study.
