We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by SCCA doctors. Many of these trials at SCCA have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your doctor can decide if a study is right for you.

Their work is evaluated by other physicians and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
