Our Dedication to Supporting Your Peace of Mind
We know you may have a lot of questions or concerns before having surgery or starting chemotherapy treatment. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping you have peace of mind by connecting you to the latest information about your unique healthcare concerns and treatment options.
MAGOPSA’s current research efforts are conducted in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (opens new window), the Gynecologic Oncology Group Foundation (GOG) (opens new window) and various industry sponsored protocols.
Our research protocols allow us to offer you the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research. This includes first line treatment for those patients newly diagnosed with gynecologic malignancies, as well as trials for those diagnosed with recurrent or progressive disease. Currently available clinical trials are geared towards ovarian, endometrial and cervical carcinomas.
- Each protocol offers patients standard of care treatment along with investigational products that have shown promise in the treatment of cancer. PARP inhibitors, HER2 pathway blockers, anti-VEGF and investigational chemotherapies are being utilized.
- A Phase I vaccine trial in advanced epithelial and ovarian cancer is also being launched.
- Tissue acquisition at the time of a patient’s initial surgery is another area of research that may offer benefit to the patient by offering specific treatment tailored to the genetic typing of the tumor. This tissue can be sent for chemotherapy sensitivity and/or molecular profiling in an effort to help individualize therapy.
