Cancer Patients Sought for Funded Clinical Trials

The University of Missouri is currently seeking patients for enrollment in funded oncology clinical trials. Study goals and suitability for each patient are discussed in detail with the clients prior to enrollment. Although clinical trial enrollment may not be the best option for all patients, in many cases, clinical trial participation provides the opportunity to receive novel, cutting-edge therapies free of charge or at a reduced cost and may facilitate treatment of pets where it would not otherwise be possible due to financial constraints or lack of other therapy options. Criteria for enrollment are outlined for each tumor type. Please direct referrals or questions to Debbie Tate, RVT (clinical trials coordinator) or the Oncology Clinical Trials Service at 573-882-7821.
