Advances in medicine are the result of new ideas and approaches developed through research. A new cancer treatment must prove to be better than the current standard of care, as well as safe and effective in scientific studies with a certain number of patients - before it can be made widely available. Cancer patients can potentially access breakthrough drugs, leading-edge medical devices, novel treatments and unique protocols through clinical trials. University of Minnesota Health Cancer Care partners with the Masonic Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center,  to offer clinical trials.
