US Oncology Research physicians are leaders in the development of new cancer treatments — it’s part of our mission to expand patient access to high-quality cancer care. US Oncology Research is comporised of a national network of community-based cancer researchers. Together, we’ve contributed to some of the most important new developments in cancer treatment today.
US Oncology Research is the nation’s largest community-based research network specializing in Phase I through Phase IV oncology clinical trials. The investigator- and sponsor-initiated trials bring innovative therapies to patients in local communities across the nation.
The results are far-reaching. For example, US Oncology Research physicians participated in a landmark trial that studied the use of postoperative chemotherapy, known (and widely used) as adjuvant therapy. This trial helped to change the standard of care for patients fighting breast cancer. As more patients are treated in a community setting, the research conducted by affiliated physicians becomes even more valuable in bringing new therapies to patients.
