Many patients at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) receive promising therapies by taking part in clinical trials. These research studies are done by physician-scientists from SCCA, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW Medicine. They test new treatments or new ways to use current treatments.
