Research has the power to transform and save lives.
We select clinical trials that we believe can offer real benefits to our
patients — and we protect and closely monitor our patients through
the entire clinical trial process. An Institutional Review Board (IRB)
comprised of physicians, researchers and community advocates carefully
evaluates the merits of each trial and ensures the clinical trial poses
no unnecessary or inappropriate risks to patients.
Current studies at St. Jude Heritage and St. Joseph Heritage Medical Groups include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Endocrinology and diabetes
If you are interested in learning how you might benefit from participating
in a clinical trial, ask your doctor for more information or contact one
of our certified clinical research coordinators at (714) 446-5177.
Because exposure to COVID-19 poses an unforeseen increased risk for participants,
decisions about whether to screen for a study or travel to St. Joseph
Cancer Center for initiating trial treatment should be made in consultation
with the research team. We appreciate your understanding as we take these
necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We remain committed
to providing our patients with exceptional care during this challenging time
