As the University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center believes in using the power of research to improve technologies, therapies and outcomes for our patients so that they may live longer, healthier lives.
We believe cancer treatments should be as unique as each of our patients. We are developing as many highly effective therapies as possible to offer patients ample options in order to determine the right drug or combination of drugs for their individual situation.
Our patients are given opportunities to participate in early-stage studies to determine if a new therapy effectively works for them. The trials are preceded by intensive and extensive laboratory research, and the potential benefits of participating in these clinical studies are numerous, including the opportunity for our patients to receive the latest treatments long before they are available anywhere else.
Trying an experimental therapy can be both exciting and a little frightening. Our focus is on the needs and concerns of participants, and we offer every assurance that each of our patients is completely in control of the process. We are vigilant about qualifying and approving candidates for specific studies. Additionally, each patient participates voluntarily and can choose to stop treatment at any time.
We have close to 200 active clinical trials and are currently recruiting for a number of studies.
