Clinical Trials

The Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG) supports national and international multicentre phase I-III cancer clinical research trials aimed at improving the survival and quality of life of cancer patients across all cancer types. The scientific agenda for the group is developed by clinical researchers across Canada and beyond, includes trials of new cancer agents, novel radiation and surgical techniques, as card card-body bg-light well as interventions to improve patient quality of life.
