Systemic Therapy Clinical Trials Unit

The Systemic Therapy Clinical Trials Unit (STCTU) is responsible for conducting most of the clinical trials for the department of Medical Oncology at BC Cancer – Victoria. These clinical trials may include, but are not limited to, studies of new cancer therapies (i.e. new chemotherapies, biological agents or hormone therapies), new technologies (i.e. PET scanning), lifestyle and supportive care programs. The first clinical trial to open at BC Cancer – Victoria, an ovarian cancer trial, was opened in 1980.

Clinical trials at BC Cancer – Victoria may have been designed by local researchers or doctors; however, the majority are headed up by national and international cooperative groups such as the Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG), Canadian Cancer Clinical Trials Network (3CTN), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP), Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG), and Breast Cancer International Research Group (BCIRG), as well as pharmaceutical companies. 

Please see Open Clinical Trials for a list of currently open trials being run through the STCTU.
