Cancer Center Research
St. Joseph Regional Cancer Center continues to participate in research and development of new and different treatments for cancer. Over the past several years, advances in technology have opened avenues for investigation of alternate treatments previously unavailable.
St. Joseph Regional Cancer Center participates in cancer research studies and clinical trials by several means. One way is through Southwest Oncology Group, which is involved in national and international studies. In addition, research is done in conjunction with pharmaceutical companies and also with studies from M.D. Anderson, where patients are registered there, but are treated and followed at St. Joseph. A constant flow of studies in these areas means that research trials are continuously being opened for our patients.
The Cancer Center, through its research team, is active in finding patients to take part in the trials, administering the treatment or drug being studied and following up on the patients after the trial is concluded.
