Clinical trials 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.

New Treatments Through Clinical Trials
The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI) is committed to exploring every avenue possible in treating your urologic 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 urologic 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 head and neck cancer and they will cover every aspect of the trial with you before you begin.
Some of the urologic 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 urologic cancer clinical trial begins and answers all of your questions and concerns.Back to Top
