Patients are able to participate in clinical trials and research studies that try to find better ways to fight cancer.  These studies go beyond cancer treatment research to include cancer prevention and cancer screening clinical trials. The National Cancer Institute sponsors several national research bases throughout the United States making clinical trials available locally. McCreery Cancer Center, affiliated with Iowa Oncology Research Association, participates in the following research bases:

  • North Central Cancer Treatment Group (NCCTG)
    Affiliated with Mayo Clinic Cancer Center
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG)
  • National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP)
  • Gynecological Oncology Group (GOG)
  • Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU)
