Clinical research provides our physicians and other clinical specialists the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and deepen professional relationships through collaboration and cooperation on some of the most important work currently being done on the frontiers of medical science.

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. They are the final step in a long process that begins with research in a lab. Many treatments used today are the result of past clinical trials.

Staying at the Leading Edge

Drugs and biologics are being developed and introduced as the new standard of care at an unprecedented rate. A cancer research program helps physicians stay well-informed of new therapeutic discoveries.

Clinical Trials

Saddleback Medical Center participates in creative and scientifically sound protocols in cancer research. We are dedicated to offering qualified patients the treatment options available through innovation in medications and procedures, including:

  • Preventive trials
  • Treatment trials
  • Device trials
  • Quality-of-life studies

Academic and Community Partnerships

In addition to our own research, we also collaborate with leading educational institutions. This keeps our clinicians at the forefront of current cancer science and expands our network of professional relationships.

For our patients, it means access to an even broader range of promising new treatments and the security of oversight by MemorialCare Research, a long-established and highly respected foundation in clinical research.
