If you could help one person facing a cancer diagnosis experience better treatment results, would you?
If you answered yes, we encourage you to take a look at our Clinical Trials program operated by the Research Department here at New Mexico Cancer Center.
Participating in a clinical trial gives you the opportunity to play a more active role in your health care while gaining access to new treatments before they are widely available. In fact, all cancer treatments in use across the country are the result of previous successful clinical trials that were conducted with that treatment.
The Research Department at New Mexico Cancer Center has conducted early- and late-phase clinical trials since 1997 in most cancer types and blood disorders. We have a devoted research team who are certified with more than 10 years of experience. NMCC has participated in trials that have led to the approval of many drugs that are used in cancer treatment today. Some of them include Herceptin, Xeloda, Procrit, Neulasta, Zevalin, Femara, Abraxane and Jevtana.
We encourage our patients to talk with their physician during their next appointment. If you are interested in a clinical trial, it is extremely important to decide whether or not to participate before receiving any treatment. Once treatment has been started it may be too late to enroll.
