Coming to Fox Chase means access to new cancer treatment options through our clinical trials.
In addition to the latest treatments, Fox Chase is actively developing and evaluating a number of new therapies, often before they are available anywhere else. We encourage eligible patients to participate in clinical trials that are available and appropriate for their stage and type of cancer. Review our list of open clinical trials. Each listing includes qualifications and additional information about that specific trial.
Ask your Fox Chase doctor if a clinical trial is right for you. For more information about clinical trials, or to discuss your eligibility, please call 888-FOX-CHASE (888-369-2427) during normal business hours.
The Fox Chase-Temple Bone Marrow Transplant Program is fully accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) and a participating provider in the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP).
