Information for patients
The Clinical Research Unit in Oncology, and in particular the new drugs group, offers patients the opportunity of receiving treatment with experimental drugs, i.e. drugs that are still in the study phase. The Unit also offers the possibility of participating in international studies conducted to assess the advantage that innovative treatments offer over standard treatments, in certain types of cancer.
Research is a fundamental aspect of the Lymphoma Unit's work, which is why a database has been set up (which so far has about two thousand cases) to collect, in anonymous form, the clinical and pathological data of lymphoma patients treated in the last thirty years at our institute.
Clinical research is essential and indispensable in order to continuously improve the treatment of breast cancer and to make new treatments quickly available to all who need them. Clinical research covers all areas of breast cancer treatment and seeks to answer outstanding questions.
