Gulf South Clinical Trials
Am I Eligible for a Clinical Trial?
As of January 31, 2021, we have helped enroll 1,231 patients for clinical studies, or roughly 10% of new cancer patients diagnosed in the state of Louisiana. While these are promising numbers, we recognize it’s important to continue helping provide clinical trial access to those in need. Thus, we have adopted a four-prong approach that aims to strengthen the existing NCORP, increase pharmaceutical trials, promote the development of new investigator-initiated trials, and expand the Virtual Research Nurse (VRN) program.
If you or someone you know has cancer, they may be eligible to participate in the clinical trial depending on their specific diagnosis and level of health.
Funding Today's Research
Finding Tomorrow's Cure
The Al Copeland Foundation Cancer Network has made it a priority to help increase access to treatment for cancer patients. Whether it’s standard care, or cutting-edge clinical trials and research therapies, our goal is to provide accessibility and a wealth of knowledge. Our timeline includes three major initiatives to help support our community, starting with developing a diverse range of clinical trials. These trials are available to anyone who is eligible to enroll, which we have made accessible through the Gulf South Clinical Trial access portal below.
As we further advance our research and development, our initiatives also include a screening, prevention and outreach program, as well as a marketing initiative to help educate patients, physicians, and the community. Ultimately, improving access to clinical trials for both patients and their doctors, and providing resources that equip our community with the necessary tools to beat cancer.
