Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are an extremely important component of cancer care. According to National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines, "the best management of any cancer patient is in a clinical trial. Participation in clinical trials is especially encouraged." Drs. Brown and Gold actively pursues this mission. Dr. Brown is the Beaumont Hospital Co-PI to NCORP (NCI Community Oncology Research Program) and is the PI (Priniciple Investigator) at Beaumont Health of many of the clinical trials offered by cooperative groups in the U.S. (NSABP, SWOG, Alliance)

Clinical Trials

 

Multiple clinical trials are available through the NCI (National Cancer Institute).  Dr. Brown is Principle Investigator at Beaumont Hospital, Troy (Beaumont Cancer Institute) for a number of these trials.  Here is a list of Breast Cancer related Clinical Trials available, as of December, 2015:
