Central Baptist Hospital is committed to being a leader in clinical research. We are dedicated to providing the latest innovations and newest therapies in a community-based setting. We are working to improve the lives of our patients.
Central Baptist has actively participated in cancer clinical trials since the early 1990’s. We are active members of:
- National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP),
- Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG),
- American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG),
- Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG),
- Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG)
- Clinical Trials Support Unit (CTSU)
All of these groups are part of the Cooperative Group system supported by the National Cancer Institute. We also work with major pharmaceutical and device companies to bring a wide variety of cancer treatment options. The cancer research at CBH is coordinated by clinical research coordinators who are experts in oncology clinical trials. The studies are conducted by experienced physicians who are board certified in surgical oncology, medical oncology, gyn-oncology and radiation oncology and these individuals currently serve as investigators or co-investigators on research projects at Central Baptist Hospital. Our research staff works closely with the patients, physicians and Cancer Care Center staff to assure a strong continuum of care for those who take part in research. Participation in clinical trials is completely voluntary. Our staff and physicians are available to answer questions at any time.
The Clinical Research Center participates in numerous research trials. Some trials involve the study of a new medication, treatment or a medical device.
