Clinical Trials Matching Service
Clinical trials are the primary means by which new cancer treatments are developed, tested, and approved for use. Most stomach (gastric) cancer patients are diagnosed at advanced stages, so treatment is difficult and complex. Therefore, clinical trials for new drugs are essential. Currently, numerous trials are underway in cancer centers across the country and the world, directed at improving the treatment and outcomes for stomach, esophageal, and GE junction cancer patients at all stages. Every patient diagnosed with these diseases should ask about clinical trials and should be treated in a facility which participates in research studies. While not every patient will end up enrolling in a trial, it is critical to be aware of the importance of these studies in advancing the treatment for stomach, esophageal, and GE junction cancer and to have access to an appropriate trial if needed.

“Patient care is a series of continuously evolving shared decisions within a care team. Asking, “Is a clinical trial right for me to consider now?” should start from day one and at every important treatment decision.” - Samuel Klempner, MD
