Clinical trials and research

Unparalleled access to the latest breakthroughs

Cancer research is no longer the exclusive domain of large research universities. Through our partnership with The US Oncology Network, Willamette Valley Cancer Institute and Research Center provides many investigational drugs through clinical trials, so that patients have access to experimental treatments otherwise unavailable. If you’re interested in participating in a trial, your oncologist can help determine if you’re a candidate. To ensure safety, candidates are carefully screened.

Patient-centered care

Our patients come first. If you qualify, you will be informed of any potential risks and benefits and provided a detailed explanation of the treatment being tested. Those who take part in clinical trials receive close, personal attention and careful monitoring. Participation is voluntary and patients can withdraw from a clinical trial at any time.

A reputation you can trust

Several of our physicians serve on US Oncology research committees to develop new protocols and to determine future studies. Research conducted by US Oncology and WVCI has been recognized at presentations of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology, and American Association for Cancer Research.
