The C. R. Wood Cancer Center physicians and staff work closely with the National Cancer Institute and other respected organizations to identify and provide opportunities for local people to take part in national clinical research trials involving the latest cancer therapies, without having to travel to Albany, Boston or New York City. Currently, there are 40 trials open and available to patients through the Center.
Under the program, local people receive the latest available treatments through the C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital and their case histories are then compared to similar patients across the country in an effort to identify and refine the most effective of the new therapies.
More than 300 local people have participated in clinical trials at the Cancer Center over the past five years.
