Multiple trials

  • Prostate cancer trials at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD [080706]

    The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), conducts more than 150 clinical trials at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. NCI is currently conducting clinical trials for patients with prostate cancer.

    There is no charge for medical care received at the NIH Clinical Center. Study participants will be responsible for travel costs for their initial screening visits. Once participants are enrolled in a trial, NCI will pay for the transportation costs for all subsequent trial-related visits for participants who do not live in the local area. In addition, these participants will receive a small per diem for food and lodging expenses if they are being treated as outpatients.

    For more information on clinical trials conducted at NCI, please visit https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/clinical-trials or call the Clinical Trials Referral Office (formerly Clinical Studies Support Center) at 1-888-NCI-1937 (1-888-624-1937). 

    The National Cancer Institute also sponsors clinical studies at cancer centers nationwide. To learn more about these studies, call 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-6237).
