Stomach Cancer: Information for Health Care Professionals

Treatment for stomach cancer at UCLA is provided through the Gastrointestinal Oncology (GI) Program, which is administered by the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine-UCLA.

Clinical care services are facilitated primarily through the Oncology Center in Westwood. To better support surrounding communities, UCLA has opened several community oncology practices to allow easier access to comprehensive cancer care services and investigative clinical trials.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are carefully controlled research studies in which cancer patients help doctors and scientists find ways to improve health and cancer care, and to make sure the treatments are safe and effective. Each study is designed to address and answer specific scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer. A clinical trial is one of the final stages resulting from the research conducted during intensive and lengthy laboratory studies.
