About Our Ongoing Trials
New clinical trials start up continually throughout the year as Contract Research Organizations reach out to Quality of Life Research to consider and undertake new studies. Following is a list of ongoing trials and studies that we are currently enrolling. If you think you might be interested in participating in ongoing trials, follow this link to express interest. We will contact you with more information and to determine if you qualify.

Ongoing clinical trials questions & answers
How do ongoing clinical trials work?
Clinical trials are a core part of the medical research process. They allow scientists to test whether new treatments, drugs and practices will work before they try them out on patients in real life settings. Clinical trials often have strict guidelines for participation because participants must be healthy adults who meet certain criteria or suffer from specific conditions; additionally, clinical trial subjects may agree to participate in studies that are paid compensation but do not provide any other form of payment outside of their involvement with the study itself (such as through insurance).
Why are your trials randomized
At several points during and at the end of the clinical trial, researchers compare the groups to see which treatment is more effective or has fewer side effects. Randomization helps prevent bias. Bias occurs when a trial’s results are affected by human choices or other factors not related to the treatment being tested.
Can clinical trials cure cancer?
Sadly, most commercially available treatments cannot cure cancer; ongoing clinical trials offer hope that we can improve outcomes for individual patients in the near or distant future by collecting information from different populations around the world to develop effective treatment methods based on what’s working with those who have similar diagnoses as well as why they’re not responding to specific drugs like others do.
