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.

Patients in the UCLA Lymphoma Program have access to the latest and most advanced treatments available for lymphomas. We have a national reputation for developing new cancer therapies and providing the best in both experimental and traditional treatments. Our research program is designed to translate the latest laboratory discoveries into clinical applications for our patients. We also have an active clinical trials program, providing patients access to the most advanced treatment options. Some of the most successful targeted therapies for cancer and blood diseases, such as Gleevec and Sprycel, were developed based on basic science research performed in UCLA laboratories, and through clinical trials with UCLA patients.
