Clinical Research for

Breast Cancer

Working together to advance research for breast cancer.

Navigating a diagnosis of breast cancer can feel overwhelming. It’s important to take time to gather information and discuss options with your doctor. One of those options might include clinical trials. People who join clinical trials make it possible to advance research resulting in new treatments. Browse our resources below to learn more or find a trial for breast cancer.

Research studies known as clinical trials help to advance breast cancer treatments, by helping us learn more about how to detect, prevent, and treat the disease. In clinical trials, an investigational medicine is studied to see if it is both safe and effective. While not all investigational medicines are successful, all approved drugs have previously been tested in clinical trials. By joining a breast cancer clinical trial, you are helping to find ways to better treat people with breast cancer.

Early Detection of Breast Cancer

As noted in an article by our partner Black Health Matters, despite great advances in treatments, early detection is still best for breast cancer survival. The article also briefly touches on health inequity between black and white patients in a breast cancer context. Visit Black Health Matters to read more on the importance of early detection for breast cancer health outcomes.
