Clinical Trials

Understanding Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are medical research studies conducted to evaluate new options for treatment, prevention or screening.

  • Before becoming the standard of care for a specific disease, many of today’s best clinical practices began as effective clinical research studies.

  • Clinical studies are designed to test a new treatment within a small group, and then use the knowledge gained, to achieve a breakthrough that will help many people.

  • Before any new treatment is tested in patients, investigators conduct studies in research labs to determine safe parameters that will increase the likelihood of success in a patient trial.

In cooperation with the University of Colorado Hospital and University of Colorado Cancer Center, clinical trials are conducted at Valley View Hospital Cancer Center.

Enrolling in a Clinical Trial

Your oncologist may determine that you are an appropriate candidate for an open clinical trial at Valley View Hospital. If your doctor recommends that you consider becoming a study member, you may choose to participate in a clinical study or not. Risks and benefits will be thoroughly explained prior to enrollment in a study.
