In the Community

Did you know?

Clinical trials are the only way for medical research to advance and find new standards of care. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) 85% of cancer patients are treated in their own community by their own local oncologist. Colorado Cancer Research Program provides state of the art cancer clinical trials for patients through their own community oncologist. In the past five years more than 1,200 patients have enrolled in cancer trials through the Colorado Cancer Research Program.

CCRP is a key player in the development and implementation of cutting edge clinical trials as well as innovative treatment protocols that offer patients an entirely new spectrum of options and REAL hope for extending and saving lives. Cancers that were previously a certain death sentence upon diagnosis are now treatable and even survivable.  CCRP partners with hospitals, community clinics and physicians through-out Colorado as well as in Wyoming and Montana, so that patients have local access in their own communities to cutting edge cancer treatment. In 2017, CCRP anticipates to have more than 70 trials open, with nearly 300 individuals taking part and another 1,500 followed for their health status post treatment.
