Active involvement in clinical trials through Berkshire Health Systems offers patients the benefits of emerging treatments not yet available outside a research facility.
All of today's standard cancer treatments were first shown to be effective in clinical trials. New and better treatments for cancer will be discovered through continued patient participation. Nearly one in 10 of our cancer patients voluntarily participate in clinical trials. In partnership with Berkshire Hematology Oncology, this personal involvement in research helps improve cancer care here in the Berkshires and nationally.
About Clinical Trials
Clinical Trials are research studies in which patients may volunteer to take part. They are an essential part of our quest to find ways to prevent, treat, and cure cancer. To qualify for a study, participants must meet carefully defined criteria. Talk to your doctor about all your treatment options.
