The medical expertise at The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment is enhanced by our participation in national cancer research. As the only hospital in California selected to participate in the National Cancer Institute Community Cancer Centers Program, our Center is actively involved in conducting cancer research that is shaping the future of cancer care.
Affiliate Membership Status with the Gynecologic Oncology Group
As an affiliate member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), our patients have access to clinical trials specifically for gynecologic cancers. The GOG is a national clinical trial cooperative group of multi-disciplinary specialists funded by the National Cancer Institute that conducts clinical trials throughout the United States and in Europe for women with gynecologic cancers. During the preceding 15 years, of the 30 clinical trials which define the management of women with gynecologic malignancies, the GOG has been responsible for the design, conduct, and completion of 21 of these trials.
Our partnership with the National Cancer Institute, the GOG, as well as academic, industry and pharmaceutical research programs enables our patients to participate in clinical and research trials that are shaping the future of cancer care. Participation in clinical trials gives cancer patients access to new medications, technologies and procedures frequently not available elsewhere. Members of our specialty teams work together to provide trial participants with real-time, evidence-based care.
