Once you locate a trial/s of interest through our search engine , browse conditions, eligibility flowcharts or mobile app |, click through to the trial’s detail page. Scroll down and review the “Eligibility” section. All clinical trials have guidelines about who can take part. Anyone who wants to take part must fit the guidelines to be in the study (called the inclusion and exclusion criteria). These usually relate to age and gender, cancer type and stage, other medical conditions you may have and the types of treatments already undergone.
Once you have located a study in which you feel you reasonably meet the eligibility criteria, contact the study team directly. On the trial’s detail page you will find “contact information” listed on the right hand side of the page.
After contacting the study team you may be pre-screened prior to an in-person consultation with a study physician who determines if you are eligible for the trial.
· The study team may ask you questions over the phone though their pre-screening process.
· You may be asked to set up an appointment through New Patient Coordinator for an in-person consultation with a study physician to determine eligibility and treatment options. The New Patient Coordinator phone number is (650) 498-6000.
If after reading study descriptions you find it difficult to decide which study is appropriate, discuss the study with your oncologist or make an appointment for a second opinion at Stanford to find out about all potential treatment options. To make an appointment, please call the Stanford Cancer Center New Patient Coordinator at 650-498-6000.
