Head and Neck Cancer Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are research studies that people volunteer for to help doctors find ways to improve health and cancer care. 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 how they treat cancer.
There are a variety of clinical trials available for head and neck cancer at OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. You may qualify to participate in a research study depending on your particular type and stage of head or neck cancer, health status, or our history of previous treatments. To learn if you are eligible for a head and neck cancer study, talk to your doctor or contact the person in charge of the study.
