Our clinical trials
We currently undertake clinical trials for cancer patients at Orange.
The Clinical Trials Unit at Orange Health Service provides the opportunity for cancer patients to access experimental drugs and new therapies closer to home.
Until recently, patients in the Central West were limited to standard of care treatments. This meant that accessing new drugs involved trips to major city hospitals and specialist centres. This can be costly and time consuming and often involves separation from family.
The Clinical Trials Unit is working with pharmaceutical companies and collaborative groups to bring a range of clinical trials to the Central West to cover many cancer types. It is our goal that as the unit progresses there will be a trial that may be suitable for many more cancer patients.
We currently have clinical trials open for a range of malignancies in medical oncology, haematology and radiation oncology.
