Since 1989, breast cancer death rates have been decreasing thanks to advancements in treatment and earlier detection. At Regional Cancer Care Associates, we’re proud to be pioneers in the improvement of breast cancer treatments through our clinical trials.

Before a new drug, medical strategy or device can be approved, it first must be evaluated for human use. This research process is called a clinical trial. As scientific studies, clinical trials are methodically designed to follow strict scientific standards. At the end of each trial, the data is used to determine if the new medical therapy is a safe and effective method for improving patient outcomes.
If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, a clinical trial can give you access to the latest advancements and innovations in treatment methods and medications. In turn, you’ll participate in a research process that may one day help improve the quality of life for thousands of women and men around the world.
It’s important to note that clinical trials are one of the final stages of a careful research process that’s been developed and tested in laboratories for a significant amount of time before being offered to humans. For your safety, all clinical trials are closely monitored by an institutional review board and scientific experts.
Before agreeing to enroll in a breast cancer clinical trial, RCCA specialists require informed consent. This means that you’ll receive in-depth information about the trial, including treatments being used, its purpose and possible risks and benefits, prior to enrollment. And as far as cost of care goes, you won’t need to pay a penny. The company sponsoring the clinical trial will cover the bill, making clinical trials an affordable option for those diagnosed with breast cancer.
Your wellness and safety is placed above all else at RCCA. That’s why our clinical trials start with a personalized plan. To learn if you’re a good candidate for a breast cancer clinical trial, schedule an appointment with an RCCA cancer care physician today.
