Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are cancer research studies that test new techniques and medicines to treat, control or prevent cancer.  These studies may also show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people.  A clinical trial is one of the final stages of a long and careful research process. Many people being treated for cancer are now living longer because of progress made through clinical trials.

St. Joseph Hospital’s mission to explore clinical trials and search for preventative care and improvement for the quality of life for our patients remains in compliance with the principles and ethics set by the Catholic Archdiocese.  We collaborate with leading cancer centers, including the Lahey Cancer Institute to provide local access to advanced clinical trials.  

Take advantage of the knowledge and resources available through our clinical trials nurse, a research professional involved in managing our clinical trials as an administrator, coordinator, and educator. She plays a critical role in planning, establishing and providing clinical trials at the St. Joseph Hospital Cancer Center.  
To find out if you're eligible for a particular study or to learn more about clinical trials, talk to your doctor, or call the St. Joseph Hospital Cancer Center at 603-880-3408.
