Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials are a core service at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and are conducted in close partnership with the BC Cancer Agency, national and international clinical trials networks, and industry partners.

By combining the genitourinary research programs at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and the BC Cancer Agency, clinical trial patients can participate in a full range of investigational studies.

Our networks have performed numerous co-operative group and industry-sponsored trials, involving well-known pharmaceutical and biotech companies.
