Today, more than 50 percent of people are cured of their cancers. This number has increased largely due to laboratory and clinical research leading to the discovery of new cancer treatments.

Research trials allow Marshfield Clinic Cancer Care patients access to new anti-cancer therapies early, often long before they are available elsewhere. Currently, more than 140 cancer clinical trials are available to our adult and pediatric patients, including new drug therapies, autologous bone marrow transplantation, genetic advancements and cancer control studies.
