MQ Health - Macquarie University

Clinical trials in cancer therapies

Clinical trials offer cancer patients access to the latest anti-cancer therapies, well before they are available routinely, and therefore MQ Health's Clinical Trials Unit is an important part of our research efforts and clinical care. The MQ Health Clinical Trials Unit supports industry-sponsored trials to optimise use of existing cancer therapies and also manages sponsored and investigator-initiated trials on new therapies and technologies.

The clinical trials underway within MQ Health are diverse, covering chemotherapies, immunotherapies and radiotherapies designed to target, for example, cancers of the bladder, breast, kidney, lung, pancreas and prostate, as well as metastatic disease where the cancer has spread from its original location.
