Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

Florida Hospital Cancer Institute offers excellence in breast cancer clinical trials in Orlando for residents of Central Florida, the surrounding region and across the country. Clinical trials for breast cancer are research studies in which people help doctors find ways to improve health and cancer care. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer. It is designed to show how a particular anticancer strategy - a promising drug, a gene therapy treatment, a new diagnostic test, or a possible way to prevent cancer - affects the people who receive it. To learn more about breast cancer clinical trials at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, or to schedule an appointment, call (407) 303-1700 or click here to fill out an online assistance form.

New Treatments Through Clinical Trials

The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI) is committed to exploring every avenue possible in treating your breast cancer. As such, we are heavily involved in clinical trials that may offer new hope in catching the disease earlier, controlling it effectively, and perhaps, eradicating it entirely.

During your treatment at the FHCI, your physician may discuss the possibility of participating in clinical trials for breast cancer. If you meet the eligibility criteria and decide you want to participate in a clinical trial, you will have access to promising new treatments and procedures that others may not benefit from for years to come. Of course, clinical trials aren’t for everyone and there are risks as well as benefits for participating in one. However, you can be assured that FHCI physicians adhere to the most rigorous guidelines when conducting clinical trials in breast cancer and they will cover every aspect of the trial with you before you begin.

Some of the breast cancer clinical trials conducted at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute can last years. Many involve additional tests, but these are usually provided at no additional cost to you. Again, your doctor will go over everything with you before the breast cancer clinical trial begins and answer all of your questions and concerns.

Benefits of Clinical Trials

Clinical trials aren’t for everyone, but if you are a good candidate for a clinical trial in breast cancer, you can help test the effectiveness of new generations of breast cancer drugs, advances in surgery or radiation therapies and new concepts in treatment. While there are never any guarantees, should a clinical trial for breast cancer prove effective, you’re the first one to benefit from it.

Other benefits of breast cancer clinical trials include:

  • Access to state-of-the-art breast cancer treatments.
  • Individualized care by a research nurse who is involved in all aspects of your clinical trial, from treatment and care to follow-up sessions with the trial physician.
  • Contributing to discovering and refining more effective ways to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer.

The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute is proud of its legacy of being one of the most active clinical trial participants in the country. Many of our partners are household names, including the National Cancer Institute, Duke University Medical Center, the UCLA Community Oncology Research Network and many highly regarded pharmaceutical companies. In many cases, we are the only institution in the southern United States to conduct many of these clinical trials for breast cancer.
