Clinical trials are research studies that seek new and better ways to detect and treat illnesses like cancer. Patients typically participate in clinical trials to gain access to promising new drug, surgical or radiation therapies.
The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center maintains more active clinical trials for the treatment of cancer than any other cancer care program in Illinois. A wide range of these studies are available to patients who receive care at our Silver Cross location. Please call us at 815-300-1400 to inquire about participating in a clinical trial.
