What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical Trials are research studies that help doctors find new and better ways to detect, treat and prevent cancer and other diseases. Research at OOS focuses on the development of new treatments, tests, or screening protocols, and captures data to detect patterns and trends.

Leading-edge oncology treatments

As a patient at Oregon Oncology Specialists, you have access to leading-edge treatment opportunities through our clinical trials program. Our program provides new and innovative options that would not otherwise be available.

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical treatment. For some patients, they can prove very beneficial, providing access to advanced care. For that reason, a clinical trial is an important option to consider when deciding on your treatment plan.

Why are clinical trials important?

Today, people are living longer lives from successful cancer treatments made possible by developments and new therapies tested in clinical trials. Through clinical trials, physicians find new ways to prevent, detect, and treat cancer. They also determine whether new treatments are safe and effective and work better than current treatments.
