What’s the latest cancer research news?

Cancer research is ongoing, with findings and breakthroughs reported on a regular basis. You may find information in medical and professional journals, magazines and newspapers, or by watching the television news. Often, this information also appears on affiliated Internet sites.

It’s important to understand that these reports are often "initial findings" that aren’t immediately useful to current cancer patients and their families. On rare occasions, you may read or hear of ongoing clinical trials and studies seeking participants. You may wish to bring these materials to your doctor’s attention in the event you may be an appropriate candidate for a clinical trial or study.
