Mayo Clinic participates in the national North Central Cancer Treatment Group, which develops chemotherapy treatment methods (protocols). This cooperative network has helped to develop the current standard treatment using a combination of five drugs, an approach that provides excellent survival rates.
Clinical trials are research studies that test new ways to detect, prevent or treat disease. Mayo Clinic conducts more than 3,000 clinical trials and research studies each year and often coordinates national clinical trials with other medical centers.
