Clinical Trials in Kansas City

Clinical Trials.jpg

There are currently four clinical studies in the Kansas City area focusing on cancer patients whose cancer and/or cancer treatment may impact their fertility. These studies are all being done in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and are sponsored by various oncology based groups.

What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are held across the country and around the world. The main goal of clinical studies is to identify a specific health problem and research ways to alter treatment to improve the health of those impacted. Clinical studies are ongoing closely regulated and monitored studies done with specific guidelines that must be met. Participants are studied in various designated stages throughout these trials. Trials like these have contributed to the advancement of research resulting in a higher rate of successful pregnancies and births. By definition clinical studies look at unknown relationships between a medical issue and treatment so there may be risks associated with participation.
