Exploring New Frontiers in Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials for Treating Cancer
Thanks to the dedicated work of scientists, doctors and researchers in labs around the world, new advances in diagnosing and treating cancer are coming on the scene every day. As one of the leading clinical trials centers in the nation, the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute has access to these important advances, including promising new drugs, gene therapy treatment, diagnostics and technologies and new developments that may one day lead to preventing or even curing selected forms of cancer. To learn more about bone marrow transplant clinical trials, please call (407) 303-1700 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.

FHCI’s Clinical Research Center has been spearheading our bone marrow transplant clinical trials since 1989. Each year our center participates in more than a hundred clinical trials. In many cases we are the only facility in the southeast United States to offer such trials. We work closely with our partnering organizations throughout the nation, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Sarah Cannon Research Institute, the Oncology Research International (TORI) out of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and various pharmaceutical companies.

Benefits of Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials
Patients choose to participate in bone marrow transplant clinical trials in the hope of finding a more effective treatment or even a cure. There are never any guarantees, of course, but our investigators believe that the options will result in either comparable or better outcomes. If a selected clinical trial works, you are one of the first to benefit.
All clinical trials carry their own unique opportunities and risks, but potential benefits include:
- Access to new drugs and interventions that are not yet widely available
- Close monitoring of your health care and potential side effects
- A more active role in your own health care
- An opportunity to make a valuable contribution to cancer research
- Having treatment monitored by leading experts in the field of cancer research
How Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Work
Clinical trials are conducted using stringent ethical and scientific guidelines. Each study follows an exacting plan that covers how many people will participate in the study, who is eligible to participate, what drugs, interventions or treatments are being used and what medical tests will be conducted to monitor their effects.
Once eligibility is established, the chief investigator and research registered nurse for the study will explain the informed-consent process to you. It is one of your most important rights and outlines the purpose of the study, the exact treatment that will be used, all possible known side effects and your right to withdraw from the study at any point.
All clinical trials involve a certain amount of risk, potential side effects and benefits that vary by the individual and study. To ensure your well being and safety, we have rigorous guidelines in place to protect you. Every clinical trial is reviewed and approved by our Institutional Review Board.
