What are they?
Why are they important?
What happens?
Should I take part?

Every day in this country we hear about clinical trials for cancer. But it isn't until cancer hits close to home that questions like these come up: What are clinical trials? Why are they important? What happens when you participate? What are the pros and the cons of being involved in a clinical trial?

The OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center and The James use the many resources of The Ohio State University to develop or participate in clinical trials for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.  Through clinical trials, we can offer patients some of the most sophisticated cancer treatments available.

This section of our Web site explains participation in clinical trials. For information on current clinical trials at The James, contact Emerging Med toll-free at
