A Robust Portfolio of Cancer Clinical Trials
Groundbreaking #HOPE4LIVER Trial Uses Sound Waves to Save Lives
A nationwide #HOPE4LIVER trial remains underway to evaluate an innovative, patient-centered treatment for liver tumors. Using a combination of robotics and histotripsy (a technique that uses sound waves to liquefy and destroy cancer tissue), this non-invasive treatment holds the potential for quicker patient recovery.
Innovative Treatment “Tricks” and Destroys Cancer Cells
A new trial is underway to study a non-invasive treatment administered orally that has the potential to slow growth and reduce the size of glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
Inclusion is Key to Unlocking New Therapies
MCW Cancer Center investigators are spearheading first-of-its-kind research to identify life-saving treatments for Acute Myeloid Leukemia in children with Down Syndrome. As cancer treatments become more and more individualized, the team’s findings highlight the importance of inclusion in clinical trials.
Dedicated Inpatient and Outpatient Care
The Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network is one of a few cancer care networks in the nation with two dedicated cancer translational research units and is home to Wisconsin’s only cancer inpatient translational research unit.
These care facilities provide an optimal space for participating in early-phase clinical trials and offer a high level of individualized care from specially trained oncology nurses.
