Clinical Trials 

If you’re fighting cancer, it’s nice to know your hospital is doing all it can to fight cancer with you 

At Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Plano, this means we offer advanced treatments today, and conduct clinical trials that may lead to even better treatments tomorrow. For example, one study is currently underway that uses a patient’s own cancer cells to personalize chemotherapy. This may allow patients to better withstand treatment with less sickness and discomfort. 

In 2010, approximately 7 percent of our patients were included in clinical trials and research studies. By taking part, you can: 

  • Help the medical community discover new, better treatments
  • Have the satisfaction of aiding in progress against disease
  • Receive the most recent information and evidence-based care from our experts 

Currently, these breast cancer clinical trials are open: 

  • lapat+trast vs trast suppression HER 2+
  • Adj. TAC vs TC vs TC+Bev
  • Adjuvant Neratinib vs Placebo
  • D-CARE Adjuvant Denosumab BrCa
  • Rd Letrozole± Dasatinib HR+ PostMen Met 

Currently, these lung cancer clinical trials are open: 

  • Eribulin with intermittent Erlotinib NSCLC
  • Pem/Carbo/Bev vs Tax/Carbo/Bev 1Ln NSCLC
  • Docetaxel +/- ASA404 in 2Ln NSCLC
  • Aranesp in NSCLC 

In affiliation with the Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center, Baylor Scott & White - Plano offers Phase II and Phase III trials, which are the earliest-stage clinical trials testing new treatments, drugs or devices on people. Most community hospitals do not have the skill or resources to conduct Phase II and Phase III studies.
