Cancer Care - Clinical Trials
Cancer research has come a long way over the past few decades. Tailored therapies, understanding lifestyle factors and insight into how tumors work on a molecular level, among other areas of research, have led to an overall decrease in the rate of cancer deaths.
Clinical trials are research studies designed to answer questions about new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent cancer. Clinical trial participants have the opportunity to receive new research treatments before they are widely available and help others by contributing to medical research. Trials are essential to develop new treatments for cancer. Learn more about Clinical trials at UNC Health Blue Ridge Cancer Center.
