At cCARE, we believe in the power of cancer research and the hope it gives to millions of patients worldwide. In fact, we have more patients involved with national and pharmaceutical clinical trials than any other cancer treatment center in the central valley. Our participation in this research has improved cancer care for people in our geographic region and around the world. These clinical trials cover a broad spectrum of diagnosis and include cancer, non-cancer, prevention and symptom management studies.

cCARE is dedicated to cancer research with ongoing clinical trials with specific departments focused solely on these studies. By participating in these clinical trials, cCARE has privileged access to treatment options that would not otherwise be available. Implementing the proper techniques with world-renowned research institutions is another example of cCARE committment to treatment. These leading edge therapies significantly increase treatment options for our patients, which aide in the plight against cancer. These trials not only have a direct benefit on our patients’ health, but they deliver positive results which can be shared and utilized in clinics worldwide. We take pride in our ongoing clinical trials with various research groups such as the prestigious Mayo Clinic. It is our quest to continually strive to reduce the number of cancer patients, deliver the most advanced forms of procedures and promote novel approaches to ongoing treatment.

cCARE are members of the following research groups:

• NCCTG (North Central Cancer Treatment Group affiliate through The Mayo Clinic)

cCARE are currently involved in clinical trials concerning breast cancer, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer.
