Clinical Trials

Lung Cancer Clinical Trials Call to Action — We want you to be aware of all treatment options. We are working with EmergingMed and other partners in the lung cancer community to offer you a way to take action — a free, confidential, personalized service that helps you understand which lung cancer clinical trials may be an option for you. Clinical trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches work in people with early stage or advanced lung cancers. They have a natural place in your care as doctors strive to improve current lung cancer treatments and search for new and better ones.
