Since December 2000, EmergingMed has guided more than 170,000 patients through a search for cancer clinical trials. (see WSJ coverage, press release)
EmergingMed’s Navigator service enables you to create a detailed profile to see if you match the eligibility requirements of more than 10,000 trials in the United States and Canada.
Our Clinical Trial Specialists will work with you by telephone to make sure you get the information you need to make important decisions about clinical trial options.
Cancer clinical trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches work in people with early stage or advanced cancers. Each study answers scientific questions and tries to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose, or treat a disease.
There are more than 250 types of cancer. Every cancer treatment—and every clinical trial—is designed for a very specific type and stage of cancer.
We suggest that you search for cancer clinical trials every time you review your treatment options. Why? Because studies only enroll patients at very specific times:
  • Just before a biopsy (to study tissue from a tumor)
  • Just before the first surgery or radiation treatment (neo-adjuvant studies)
  • Just after surgery or radiation treatment (adjuvant studies)
  • Soon after a cancer has recurred or spread (metastasized)
  • Soon after you learn that your cancer is spreading despite current treatment
Step 1: Create a profile online or by phone to find clinical trials that match your specific cancer diagnosis, stage and treatment history.
Step 2: Match your profile to the eligibility criteria of all the cancer clinical trials in our database.
Step 3: Navigation support from our Clinical Trial Specialists will help you connect with the doctors and nurses conducting the trials you match, answer questions during your search, and help you quickly gather information to share with your doctor.
