Speaker: Kimberly Bochinski, Office of Clinical Research

Clinical trials are an essential part of how advances are made in medicine.  The standard treatments used today and ways to detect and prevent cancer are all built upon of the results of yesterday’s clinical trials.  But what exactly is a clinical trial?  How do you find more information about clinical trials or go about enrolling in a clinical trial?  It can be a bit overwhelming to undertake this search on your own.  But there are many resources available to help guide you.  You will learn what these resources are and how to access them so that you can make the best possible informed decision as to whether a clinical trial may be right for you.

Light refreshments will be served.

Clinical Trials

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 the Office of Clinical Research at 215-214-1515 during normal business hours.
