Oncology Clinical Trials

NCI Community Oncology Research ProgramMain Line Health recently became a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP), one of only 34 in the United States. The NCORP provides patients with access to NCI sponsored cancer clinical trials studying screening, prevention, and symptom management for the oncology patient. The Main Line Health NCORP is currently led by principal investigator Albert DeNittis, MD.

The many advantages of the NCI-sponsored consortium between Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Paoli Hospital and Riddle Hospital to the Main Line Health community include having access to state-of-the-art clinical trials and new cancer treatments before they become available to the general public, and allowing patients to be more active in their healthcare.
