Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. Through clinical trials, doctors find new ways to improve treatments and the quality of life for people with disease.

Researchers design cancer clinical trials to test new ways to:

  • Treat cancer
  • Find and diagnose cancer
  • Prevent cancer
  • Manage symptoms of cancer and side effects from its treatment

If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, speak with your oncologist. For more information about oncology clinical trials at Oak Valley Health, please visit the Office of Research.
