How LVHN’s Cancer Clinical Trials Could Save Your Life

Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance means our patients have easy access to groundbreaking, lifesaving cancer care close to home. MSK is recognized worldwide as one of the preeminent leaders in cancer care and research.

This groundbreaking care often comes about through clinical trials, which are tests of new medications in patients to make sure they are safe and effective. These trials are reviewed thoroughly beforehand to ensure the process is conducted safely and ethically. This means being involved in a clinical trial may give you the chance to receive drugs or therapies years before they would be available elsewhere.

Do you think you or a family member might be interested in a clinical trial? Would you like to find out more about them? You can start by reviewing Clinical Trials – Your Questions Answered and then contacting LVHN at 610-402-CARE to speak with one of our LVHN Cancer Institute professionals directly.
