Breast Cancer Research Clinical Trials
18 - 75, Enrolling, Inpatient
Today, there are a number of breast cancer clinical studies being conducted around the United States. For many people, the effects of their cancer keep them from living the life they want to. While there are a number of breast cancer treatments available to them, in some cases the combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy are not enough to keep this disease from progressing. Through new clinical trials on breast cancer, researchers are discovering new ways to combat this cancer, as well as better methods of diagnosing breast cancer following the onset of initial signals (presence of lump or pain and tenderness in the breast). If you have exhausted all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with the symptoms of breast cancer, then it may be time to try something new.

Clinical research studies of investigational treatments to test breast cancer and therapies are currently being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies. They’re designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised breast cancer research study, you may receive new investigational breast cancer treatments that may help us all understand your condition.
In many cases patients who could benefit from breast cancer investigational treatment miss out on research studies because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they are going through so much they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.
The type of study being performed by Achieve Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a research study is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most are more involved and would require some tests and a visit to our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.
Current Breast Cancer Clinical Trials
Achieve Clinical Research is currently conducting a wide array of clinical studies including those targeted towards breast cancer. You may be eligible to participate in one of our clinical trials and contribute to the development and approval of a new drug or treatment. As a participant, there is no cost to you at any point during the study and health insurance is not required. Browse our paid clinical trials to find the study best suited for you. If you live outside of Birmingham and are interested in participating in a study, you can find more breast cancer clinical trials in Alabama over at Know Cancer. You can also find cancer trials anywhere in the world by visiting the NIH’s website.
