At City of Hope, cervical cancer clinicians and researchers collaborate extensively to develop and evaluate new therapies for better survival and quality-of-life outcomes. Our patients have access to a wide variety of clinical trials including new chemotherapy and targeted therapies, hormone therapies, novel surgical techniques, innovative radiation approaches and new prevention strategies.
These trials give current patients access to promising, leading-edge therapies and improve overall care for future patients worldwide. Visit our clinical trials page to learn more about current studies and their eligibility criteria.
Some of our current research projects include:
- Evaluating the best therapy for relieving malignant bowel obstruction due to cervical cancer or its treatments
- Enhancing the quality of life for cervical cancer patients and survivors by engaging them in a peer-to-peer support program with other survivors
- Improving cancer caregivers’ quality of life by connected them with a nurse to educate them on symptom evaluation and management, caregivers’ self-care needs and resources available to them
