Cancer Clinical Trials
Your doctor may talk to you about a clinical trial, or you may learn about one on your own. In clinical trials, researchers explore new treatments for cancer and other diseases.
New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) Zimmer Cancer Center offers clinical trials through the National Cancer Institute and drug companies. Through the networks we work with on clinical trials, you may have access to an emerging treatment not easily available elsewhere.
Cancer specialists with NHRMC have participated in more than 120 clinical trials for over 20 years. Clinical trials from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are available through the Southeast Clinical Oncology Research Consortium (SCOR). SCOR is a NCI Community Oncology Research Program and one of the goals of this program is to bring state-of-the-art research opportunities to patients in local and rural communities.
