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
Current clinical Trials are always developing. For more information about participating in a local trial, contact your oncologist or Clinical research Navigator  Leslie Juliani, RN, OCN at 860-646-1222 ext 1406 or
