Clinical Trials

Cancer Services in Toledo

In addition to standard cancer treatment options, clinical trials are research studies where patients help cancer doctors (oncologists) discover new and better ways to improve treatment or diagnose cancer. Clinical trials offer your oncologist the opportunity to treat you with an investigational drug or procedure, with your permission, that otherwise may not be available.

Your oncologist may review appropriate clinical trials with you and ask if you would like to participate. All clinical trials have criteria to determine who can get into the program.

These criteria are based on such factors as:
  • Age
  • Gender
  • The type and stage of a disease
  • Previous treatment history
  • Medical Conditions
Before joining a clinical trial a participant must qualify for the study. It is important to note that these criteria are not used to reject people personally, but are used to identify appropriate participants, keep them safe and ensure that researchers will be able to answer the questions they plan to study.

Participation is voluntary, and your decision to opt out will not effect your treatment and care.

See our list of current clinical trials available at Mercy.
