The US Oncology Network is a worldwide leader in cancer research, and many cancer treatment centers in The Network offer their patients a chance to participate in some of the most advanced clinical trials available today. Oncology clinical trials provide patients the opportunity for a better outcome and quality of life, while playing a vital role in the fight against cancer. These novel clinical studies are usually only available in major academic medical centers or hospital systems located in large cities, but cancer treatment centers in The US Oncology Network make them accessible to patient’s right in their local communities where they have the support of family and friends.
