Clinical Trials

Some people with cancer choose to participate in clinical trials. The Eastern Connecticut Cancer Institute (ECCI) and our oncologists make a number of clinical trials available to our patients.
Clinical trials are research studies that see whether a certain medication, treatment, device or strategy is safe and effective for humans. Clinical trials also help determine which treatments work best for certain illnesses and certain groups of people, including people with cancer.
You can learn more about clinical trials by visiting the National Institutes of Health clinical trials website at
For more information about participating in a local clinical trial, contact your oncologist or call the John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center at 860.533.2929.
