The trials listed in this section are not limited to one “primary” organ site of cancer origin. Trials listed here are testing new cancer treatments from multiple different primary organ sites. Some trials, such as Novartis Signature Series, are selected by specific pathway “driver” mutations based upon molecular analysis of the patient’s tumor. These trials are testing a “personalized” or “precision” approach to treating a patient’s specific cancer based upon its molecular fingerprint.
