Clinical Trials and Research
As one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers, UT Southwestern Harold C. Simmons Cancer Center offers a broad spectrum of clinical trials in all phases aimed at improving the outcomes of patients with various stages of lung cancer.
Clinical trials are a type of research that is critical in developing new therapies for lung cancer. Clinical trials often give patients access to leading-edge treatments that are not yet widely available. Patients who qualify and choose to participate in one of UT Southwestern’s clinical trials may receive treatments years before they are available to the public.
One of our innovative clinical trials includes the Stablemates Trial for early stage lung cancer patients. Watch the video below to see one example of how UT Southwestern researchers are bringing new options to patient care.
If you are interested in a lung cancer clinical trial, talk to your UT Southwestern physician or the contact associated with a specific trial. To schedule an appointment with a lung cancer specialist, request an appointment or call 214-645-8300.
