Research and Clinical Trials

Involved in national research for more than 30 years, Carle Cancer Institute offers its patients access to innovative ways to fight cancer through clinical trials. Clinical trials offer new insight into how to combat a disease like cancer and demonstrate new ways of preventing, treating, or possibly curing cancer.

Carle Cancer Institute provides access to clinical trials for several types of cancer including but not limited to breast, lung, colon, melanoma, prostate, and ovarian cancer. We are also actively involved in national prevention clinical trials per cancer type. In addition, we offer symptom management program to address the quality of life of cancer patients.

National Cancer Institute "Cancer Moonshot Biobank"

This trial collects multiple tissue and blood samples, along with medical information, from cancer patients. The "Cancer Moonshot Biobank" is a longitudinal study. This means it collects and stores samples and information over time, throughout the course of a patient's cancer treatment. By looking at samples and information collected from the same people over time, researchers hope to better understand how cancer changes over time and over the course of medical treatments.

Understanding Patient Perspectives on Hospice Care

The purpose of the study is to understand patient views about hospice care.

Understanding the Nutritional Challenges of Food Insecure Cancer Survivors

We are conducting a survey to help us understand how food insecurity may impact cancer survivors. Our main goal is to determine how common food insecurity is among cancer patients and survivors. We will also determine how food insecurity is connected with outcomes important to cancer survivors, such as quality of life and nutritional condition. Lastly, we want to understand how cancer patients and survivors manage their household and medical costs in relation to food and nutrition.
