Clinical trials are research studies that are designed to answer scientific questions and find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat various diseases and conditions, including cancer. In fact, some of the most successful cancer treatments that we have today are based on what we have learned from clinical trials.
Because of clinical trials, people with cancer are living longer, with a better quality of life. Participating in clinical trials at the University of Illinois Cancer Center, means that you will also receive compassionate health care, with close monitoring by a team of expert researchers and physicians.
