Patients may have the opportunity to enroll in clinical trials. Patients in clinical trials benefit from the latest developments in the field:
- GUMDROP Prostate Cancer Trials: The Genitourinary Multidisciplinary D.C. Regional Oncology Project (GUMDROP) is an effort of more than ten centers in the D.C. region that regularly collaborate to improve patient care through clinical trials.
- GW Cancer Center partners with the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) to study new treatments for prostate cancer.
- We partner with the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH is the leading government agency in the United States responsible for health research. It is the largest biomedical research agency in the world and offers prostate cancer-related clinical trials.
