As part of our comprehensive approach to cancer care, patients receiving treatment at Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center can participate in National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical trials and research projects. As a member of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center patients benefit from some of the newest investigative cancer treatments.
A clinical trial is designed to show whether a new method of treatment or drug is better or more effective than the standard treatment. Researching new drugs and new drug regimens continues to provide potentially lifesaving benefits to many patients. Participation in the most recent clinical trials helps to advance cancer therapy overall while expanding the options for patients seeking alternative treatments.
