South African Clinical Oncology Trials
The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) and Quintiles are collaborating to support awareness of, and access to, cancer related clinical trials:
- Clinical research participation may offer a care option which would otherwise not be available to patients.
- We recognise the value in enhancing patient awareness of and access to information about treatment options in order to facilitate informed decision-making.
This collaboration will therefore aim to enhance communication and co-ordination of information around cancer related clinical trials taking place in South Africa, as well as improve collaboration to identify and better respond to patient needs.
To this end, CANSA will make available regularly updated information on cancer related clinical trials currently taking place in South Africa.
Please note, CANSA has no affiliation with, or involvement in, any clinical trials.
