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.

Promising New Treatments Through Clinical Trials

When you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you want to know all the options for treatment. As one of the leading medical research facilities in the country, the Gynecologic Oncology Center at Florida Hospital has access to some of the most promising clinical trials for cancer.

These new treatments and advanced technologies offer patients the following benefits:

  • Being among the first to benefit from a new cancer treatment.
  • Access to state-of-the art treatment.
  • Dedicated attention from a research nurse who attends all your cancer treatment, follow-up and care associated with the clinical trial.
  • Direct contribution to finding more effective ways of preventing, detecting and treating cancer

Working closely with such prestigious organizations as the National Cancer Institute, Duke University Medical Center, the UCLA Community Oncology Research Network and various pharmaceutical companies, Florida Hospital’s network of centers of excellence conduct nearly 200 clinical trials annually.

Our researchers are working daily to develop new and improved treatment options for a multitude of cancers, giving our community access to new ways to fight this disease.

Department of Health Awards
In 2009, researchers at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute received a 3-year grant from the Department of Health to further their research of treatments for ovarian cancer, a leading cause of cancer death among women.

Our goal is for every cancer patient to have access to the best care possible resulting in the most positive clinical outcome. That is why we are investing in research to find new ways to prevent and cure cancer.
