oncology trials

The TriHealth Hatton Research Institute's Oncology research team, and researchers at  TriHealth’s Cancer Institute and Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care conduct important clinical trials targeting improvements in the prevention and treatment of specific kinds of cancer. Composed of a team of research nurses and clinical research assistants, the TriHealth Hatton Research Institute's Oncology research team has many decades of experience in oncology research.

Clinical trials supported by our Oncology research team include cooperative group trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, studies through the Catholic Health Initiative, and Pharmaceutical Trials.

What is a Clinical Trial?

A clinical trial (also called “clinical research,” “research study,” and “protocol”) is a research study that evaluates a new test, drug or treatment in people to make sure it is safe and effective. Carefully conducted clinical trials are vital to discovering new, better, safer treatments for people, and improve health and quality of life.

Clinical trials are important today for many reasons, including:

  • Contributing to improved scientific knowledge about cancer: how to detect it, and how to treat it, and even how to prevent it
  • Possibly benefiting individual patients by providing newer and better treatments, and possibly, a cure
