For Medical Professionals
The Clinical Trials Office of the Cancer Research Center coordinates our participation in several national cancer cooperative trials, directed not only at new therapies but also at prevention, education and screening for early detection. A key component is our active participation in the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG), a national clinical trials cooperative established with National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding. We are the only full-member institution in New England. We are also members of NSBBP (National Surgical Breast and Bowel program.) Participation in SWOG and NSBBP clinical trials gives us access to many investigational drugs and protocols sponsored by the NCI that would be unavailable otherwise. In addition, we are the principal investigators for a series of clinical trials at Boston Medical Center.
