The purpose of this study is to test whether a new drug regimen will reduce the chances of side effects but be just as effective as the usual treatment for HER2-positive, ER-negative and node negative breast cancer.

Canadian Cancer Society announces details of research funding for low-survival cancers, the CCTG Breakthrough Grant Application lead by Dr Marshall Pitz, has received $ 1,549,130 over 5 years.
Brain cancers that are classified as grade 2 or 3 gliomas are incurable and when they recur after treatment, the lack of effective therapies for these hard-to-treat cancers leads to very poor outcomes. With the 5-year survival rate after recurrence approaching 0%, there is an urgent need for new, effective therapies. Currently, there are no clinical trials in Canada testing new and promising treatments at the time of recurrence.
Practice changing data presented in endometrial cancer that demonstrates improved progression-free survival outcomes with the addition of Pembrolizumab to chemotherapy for women with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.
EN10 (RAINBO BLUE & TAPER) is a new Canadian clinical trial that is applying state-of-the-art molecular testing to classify post-surgery treatments in early-stage endometrial cancer to identify people at low risk of cancer recurrence based on the molecular features of their tumours.
CCTG HN11 SELECT has now opened to accrual across Canada and sites in the US. The trial is a randomized, controlled, phase III clinical trial for patients with lateralized oropharyngeal carcinoma (OPC)
A new Canadian trial designed and led by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre will determine whether Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) can replace the standard brachytherapy boost for men with unfavourable risk prostate cancer.
Three CCTG trials were recently awarded nearly $7.5M from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) 2022 Spring Project Grant competition.
The recently launched Centre for Health Innovation, aims to connect researchers from across multiple disciplines to tackle the most pressing human health challenges. A critical part of the centre will be a new home for the CCTG Tumour Tissue Data Repository and includes a large-scale expansion of its histopathology and biobanking resources.

Cancer is not a single disease; it is hundreds. Cancers of the lung, breast, prostate, and colon are the most common forms of the disease, and account for about half of all diagnoses. But less common forms of cancer also account for about half of diagnoses, and these are not as well studied.
CCTG has launched a patient-centred observational study: SC27 Living With Cancer in the Time of COVID-19: A Cohort Study of the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Cancer Patients During Treatment and Survivors. The aim of this study is to examine the emotional and physical consequences of living with cancer during this pandemic and the impact it may have on your quality of life and changes in your cancer care and follow-up.

Once the initial shock of a cancer diagnosis wears off, patients and families are left with questions. Lots and lots of questions. It might come as a relief to know that some of the most brilliant, accomplished scientists from around the world are listening.
“The biggest question we ask is the one that all cancer patients have,” says CCTG Scientific Director Dr. Janet Dancey. “What is the best treatment?”
