Clinical Research

The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara's Clinical Research program brings some of the newest treatment options to our community by providing access to clinical trials. Through collaborative efforts with community oncologists, we currently offer over twenty-five clinical trials for numerous disease sites, including: breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, melanoma, gynecological cancers, lung cancer, and lymphoma. These clinical trials are largely sponsored by National Cancer Institute cooperative groups, as well as private research networks such as the UCLA's Translational Oncology Research Institute (TORI), and individual pharmaceutical companies.

Clinical trials not only offer patients access to potentially better treatments than the standard of care but also ensure consistent progress towards improving the standard of care for cancer therapy. The data collected during a clinical trial result in increased knowledge about the best treatment for a specific set of circumstances; this specific knowledge ultimately leads to general advances in cancer treatment for all patients
