Clinical Trials for Breast Cancer

Dr. O’Connor explains how the breast team determines the right course of treatment for breast cancer patients.

Clinical trials are scientific studies designed to evaluate how well a new treatement, a new drug combination, or a new approach works in a specific group of people. Today's standard tratments were first evaluated in the same way, through past clinical trials. Roswell Park’s robust research program offers breast cancer patients access to treatments that are unavailable through other cancer care providers. Some of our current trials include:

  • potential new drugs for breast cancer
  • new ways to use existing cancer drugs or therapies
  • new targets or pathways by which to attack the cancer
  • new methods to predict whether a patient will respond to a particular treatment

New clinical trials become available everyday. Talk to your oncologist about which ones might be right for your cancer. Learn more about our current clinical trials involving breast cancer.
