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.
Every advance in cancer treatment in recent years has come out of clinical trials. We offer more active clinical trials than anywhere else, which means more treatment options for patients like you.
For some people, taking part in a clinical trial may be the best treatment choice. Access to clinical trials by researchers at SCCA and our founding organizations Fred Hutch and UW Medicine is one reason many patients come to SCCA.
Important areas of research for CLL include new immunotherapies, antibodies, targeted therapists and combinations of targeted therapies.
