Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
How can I find out about clinical trials for my prostate cancer that is not responding to hormones anymore?
Carolyn Vachani RN, MSN, AOCN, OncoLink's Nurse Educator, responds:
There are many clinical trials being conducted for patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer. OncoLink has a service, powered by EmergingMed, which can narrow your search for trials based on your particular case. Visit the clinical trials section of OncoLink or call 1-800-474-9892 for assistance. The National Cancer Institute also offers clinical trials listing via their website, www.cancer.gov.
Apr 16, 2010 - The U.S. cancer clinical trials system is in great need of an overhaul so that it can continue to support large-scale, multi-institutional clinical trials that result in gains in cancer treatment, according to a new report commissioned by the U.S. National Cancer Institute and conducted by the Institute of Medicine.
