Cancer clinical trials are research studies that look at new ways to treat, diagnose or prevent cancer. Marietta Memorial Hospital Strecker Cancer Center provides our community access to cancer clinical trials to our community through an affiliation with Columbus Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP)
. Columbus CCOP is a consortium of central Ohio hospitals that is funded by the National Cancer Institute to bring benefits of clinical research to cancer patients in their own communities.
Over 100 clinical trials are presently available through Strecker Cancer Center. Included in these are cancer treatment as well as cancer prevention studies.
