Comprehensive prides itself on its extensive research program that brings groundbreaking clinical research trials to the community. The practice, which partners with institutions such as UCLA TRIO-US, Sarah Cannon Research Institute (formerly US Oncology Research), USC, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and leading pharmaceutical companies, participates in more than 150 Phase I, II & III clinical research studies each year, and has contributed to the development of more than 100 FDA-approved cancer therapies.

Community Clinical Oncology Program

The Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) was established by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1983. Through this program, community physicians work with scientists conducting NCI-supported clinical trials. The CCOP introduces the newest clinical research findings and procedures to community settings. Comprehensive Cancer Centers is affiliated with Nevada Cancer Research Foundation, which is a CCOP. Through this affiliation, Comprehensive oncologists are able to bring the latest cancer procedures and treatments to its patients.

Other Partnerships

In some cases, Comprehensive works with pharmaceutical companies independently to bring new treatments and novel therapies in cancer research to the community.
