Cancer Clinical Trials & Research ProgramĀ 

Garnet Health Medical Center has an active Clinical Trials program for oncology patients. As affiliate members of the Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai Health System we have access to many high priority, national clinical trials from Southwest Oncology Group Studies and also participate in American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG), Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and other Inter-group studies through the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Clinical trials provide patients at all stages of cancer with leading edge medical treatment and the highest level of care. In most cases, the new treatment has already shown promise of being an improvement over the standard treatment. Many clinical trials are tests to see how much better a new treatment works than the current one.

Garnet Health Medical Center currently offers several clinical trial protocols for the following types of cancer:

  • Breast
  • Bladder
  • Head & Neck
  • Kidney
  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)
  • Lung
  • Melanoma
  • Prostate

For more information on these protocols or any other research, please contact your physician or our clinical research coordinator:
