Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a research study that tests new treatments. UofL’s Department of Surgery provides patients with access to the latest clinical trials and treatment. For information on our current list of trials, visit clinicaltrials.gov

If you are considering participating in a clinical trial, you may have many questions. The National Cancer Institute has a wealth of information about clinical trials and not just about cancer-related trials. We recommend you review that site. You also can download a pdf version of NCI’s Clinical Trials: Questions and Answers here.
