What is clinical research?

Clinical research offers patients opportunities to test new molecules or combinations of molecules before they are marketed. It involves clinical trials offered by the pharmaceutical industry, as well as studies initiated by King Albert II Institute clinicians. 


The aim of these trials is twofold: to offer patients the most recent forms of treatment, and to push forward research in the battle against cancer.

As many patients are treated in our centre with its great expertise, the King Albert II Institute collaborates with numerous firms. This gives patients opportunities to benefit from all the latest treatment perfected in pharmaceutical laboratories.

These clinical trials are co-ordinated internally by doctors and medical and clinical research co-ordinators whose job is to monitor patients and collect data.

They are subject to continual surveillance and satisfy internal and international quality criteria, ensuring that patients are protected and medical care kept at a high level.
