Research and Clinical Trials
Sutter Cancer Centers
Search for Clinical TrialsCancer research continues to advance in many directions, offering new hope for ways to find cancer and better ways to treat it. Sutter Cancer Centers in Sacramento and Roseville are actively involved in several clinical trials.
In cancer research, a clinical trial is a study conducted with cancer patients, usually to evaluate a new treatment. Each study is designed to answer scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help cancer patients.
Before a new treatment is tried with patients, it is carefully studied in the laboratory. This research points out the new methods most likely to succeed and, as much as possible, shows how to use them safely and effectively.
To participate in a cancer clinical trial, patients must meet the study requirements, volunteer as a research participant and obtain their doctor’s approval. Sutter Cancer Centers strongly suggest learning as much as you can about the trial you are interested in before deciding to volunteer.
More information about volunteering as a clinical trial participant is available on the Sutter Institute for Medical Research Web site.
