We’re committed to our mission of finding new treatments that may help improve the lives of people with cancer. We perform these trials to see if they can help prevent, find, or treat cancer.

Solid cancers are a solid mass of tissue. The major types of solid cancer include sarcomas, carcinomas, and lymphomas.

Sarcomas are cancers that start in soft tissue and bones. There are over 70 different kinds of sarcoma.

Carcinomas begin in skin cells or in tissue lining organs.

Lymphomas are cancers that start in the cells of the lymph system, compromising the immune system.

There is a lot to consider when deciding whether to participate in a clinical trial. Any clinical trial includes risks which the study doctor will review with you. Make sure you understand the risks before participating.
