Bronson Battle Creek is an active participant in the Grand Rapids Clinical Oncology Program (GRCOP) which is funded by the National Cancer Institute and a consortium of hospitals. Through clinical trials, BBC cancer patients can participate in cutting-edge treatment research in the quest to cure cancer.
Cancer clinical trials develop better ways of detecting, treating, and eventually preventing cancer. The trials test many types of treatment such as new drugs, new approaches to surgery or radiation therapy, new combinations of treatments, or new methods such as gene therapy. By taking part in a clinical trial, participants are among the first to receive new research treatments before they are widely available.
