Participating in Clinical Trials

Participation in clinical trials offered at Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers (NGOC) by eligible patients provides:

  • Access to new treatments in development that are only available through clinical trials
  • Access to select clinical trials ┬áthat have undergone vigorous scientific and ethical review, ensuring high levels of patient safety protection
  • Access to and the assurance of the highest level of quality care throughout the practice since clinical trials have a high degree of regulatory oversight

Clinical trials are not available to everyone. Patients must provide informed consent and qualify through a protocol specific screening process. Participation is completely voluntary. If you do not qualify or choose not to participate in a clinical trial offered at NGOC, your cancer doctor will still be able to offer standard treatment alternatives.
