Gynecologic Oncology Clinical Research
At the Gynecologic Oncology Institute, we help our patients look at ALL options, including tomorrow’s standard therapies today. We deliver “many options” combined with high-tech but personalized focus, and this helps us help you fight the best fight possible.
By having world-renowned scientists, physicians and treatment facilities working side by side at the John Wayne Cancer Institute, we’re able to direct you to your best options even if that best option is located elsewhere.
Many of today’s most effective cancer and disease therapies are based on the results of clinical trials that depend on volunteer patients. By being part of a clinical trial, a patient could benefit from the latest treatments available, treatments that are promising but unproven.
In addition to our current offerings, search through the national NCI clinical trials database below. See if any of them sound promising and interesting to you. As with all decisions regarding your medical care, the choice to participate is yours to make. We will do our best to advise you about your options.
You can access the online clinical trials database below or call us to find out about clinical trials that are being conducted at GOI and other centers; but before you can participate in a specific trial, you must be seen by a doctor to discuss whether you are eligible. Once you are seen, you will be provided with information about treatment and can inquire about clinical trials.
All clinical trials are based upon a study plan called a protocol. Designed with great care, the plan helps to ensure the safety of the participants and answer specific research questions. A protocol details the specifics of the study: who can participate, different procedures, test schedules, medications and dosages, and the length of the study.
- Answer specific questions about vaccines, new therapies or novel ways of using known treatments.
- Determine whether new drugs or treatments are effective.
- Develop new procedures and treatments to improve patient outcomes and advance medical science.
GOI considers clinical research options to be a very important part of your care. When standard therapies fail, new advances are being developed faster than ever before. Our pledge is to keep you informed of clinical trials options during your treatment with us.
