Current Clinical Trials

What Are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are a type of clinical research in which patients can volunteer to participate. Clinical trials try to find better and new ways to prevent, detect or treat diseases. Clinical research is an integral part of the mission of the Christus St. Vincent Cancer Center. We believe in offering access to clinical trials for our patients close to home, giving our patients access to the latest therapies here in New Mexico.

Below is a current list of clinical trials being offered at the Christus St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center.
