Melanoma Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials | MelanomaClinical trials are research studies in which people help doctors find ways to improve health and cancer care. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer.

The results of these research studies, called outcomes, give health care providers the data necessary to make advances and improvements in the way doctors treat cancer.

Since 2011, recent successes in clinical trials have brought rapid advances in immunotherapy treatment that is vastly improving the options for people with advanced melanoma. Participating in a clinical trial offers patients access to promising drugs sooner, without compromising the “gold standard” of care. We offer hundreds of open clinical trials, including many specifically designed for people with melanoma or skin cancer.

If you are interested in learning more about research studies at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, or participating in a research study, please talk with your doctor to see if there is an open clinical trial that’s right for you. Your participation in research studies may help us find a cure for melanoma.
