Gastrointestinal Cancer Research

Clinical trials – research studies that involve volunteer patients – are a crucial component to developing new, more effective treatments that save lives. Many of today’s standard therapies are based on the results of previous trials, some of which were initiated at City of Hope. 

Getting treated for gastrointestinal cancers at City of Hope means you are steps away from labs where new treatments for cancer are being developed every day. That proximity means you benefit from something unique in cancer care — bench to bedside treatment.

“Bench to bedside” means innovative research we are conducting in our labs is moved quickly to the bedside to treat our patients. We offer drug, surgical and other clinical trials aimed at improving survival rates and enhancing quality of life.
