MaineGeneral's Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care gives you access to cutting-edge research studies and experimental medications that are used at the country's top cancer centers. These studies are called clinical trials.
The decision to participate in a clinical trial is an important one. Our team, along with The National Institutes of Health, will give you information to help guide you in your decision.
What do clinical trials do?
Clinical trials try to increase medical knowledge and find new and better ways to help people with cancer. Each study answers specific questions about a new treatment or a new way of using a known treatment.
Clinical trials also study new combinations of drugs already used in cancer treatment, new ways of providing treatment and how lifestyle changes can help cancer patients or prevent cancer from occurring.
Other trials compare the best known standard therapy with a newer therapy to see if one produces more cures and causes fewer side effects than the other.
Unless indicated as closed, the following clinical trials are open to enrollment.
