Promise and Progress - New on the Kimmel Cancer Center Web Site
New on the Kimmel Cancer Center Web Site
Date: June 1, 2004
Clinical Trials: A World of Research at Your Fingertips
The Kimmel Cancer Center recently launched its clinical trials database on its Web site, www.hopkinskimmelcancercenter.org. Patients can now use this database to search for the most up-to-date information on Johns Hopkins clinical trials (highly structured, peer-reviewed studies that test new therapies) for all types of cancers. A weeklong schedule of events, including a “cyber café,” gave patients, families and friends a hands-on opportunity to explore the database with the assistance of faculty and staff.
For those with questions about a clinical trial, research nurse and cancer information specialist Kathy Carducci (410-955-8804) is working with our new patient referral office to provide information to physicians, nurses, patients, family members and the general public about cancer clinical trials.
