When it comes to your cancer care, Fox Chase gives you more choices.

We have approximately 200 cancer clinical trials underway at any given time.

Clinical trials are research studies conducted with people who volunteer to take part. These studies evaluate new approaches to screen for, diagnose, treat and prevent cancer.

You benefit by having access to new cancer treatments and options not otherwise available in addition to the excellent care offered at Fox Chase.

Like all treatment options, clinical trials have possible benefits and risks.

Benefits
Risks
You may get a new treatment that is not yet open to people outside of the study. The treatment may not be better than, or even as good as, the standard treatment.
The research team will watch and support you closely. There may be side effects that the doctors do not expect. 
If the treatment is better than the standard treatment, you may be among the first to benefit. You may need more tests. Some of the  ┬átests could be uncomfortable or take a lot of time.
The trial may help scientists learn more about cancer and help people in the future. The treatment may work in some patients, but may not work for you.
