Medical Services/ Clinical Research
Clinical research is an important step in finding new and better ways of treating cancer. Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) is dedicated to advancing cancer care by leading and participating in many clinical trials that test the safety and efficiency of new or modified treatments in cancer patients. These trials are important because they help uncover new treatment options, and give many of our patients the opportunity to receive newly developed treatments or investigational drugs not yet available outside the study.
Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada has a long history of clinical trial participation and leadership in Southern Nevada. CCCN is the state’s only cancer treatment facility to be affiliated with the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and UCLA’s Translational Oncology Research International network, and US Oncology’s Translational Oncology Program. Additionally, the practice is affiliated with the Community Clinical Oncology Program, and also offers radiation clinical trials through Nevada Cancer Research Foundation and pediatric oncology research through Children’s Oncology Group.
