IU Health Arnett Cancer Services stay on the leading-edge of cancer research through an affiliation with IU School of Medicine and IU Simon Cancer Center. By working with internationally renowned researchers, our physicians gain access to new and innovative therapies and provide a wide variety of treatment options.
IU Health Arnett participates in a variety of clinical trials, which use new ideas and techniques to treat cancer. Many cancers, such as breast cancer, lymphoma, ovarian cancer and lung cancer, are being treated using clinical trials. Clinical trials may include the use of new chemotherapy drugs, different radiation therapies or immunotherapy.
IU Health Arnett is currently participating in trials offered by:
- National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) of the National Cancer Institute
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG)
- Hoosier Oncology Group (HOG), supported by the National Cancer Institute
Become a Research Advocate
Researchers at Purdue and IU Health Arnett have partnered with Research Advocacy Network to educate the public about the role they can play in cancer research. Community advocates are critical to providing information to their friends and neighbors explaining what it means to be part of a clinical trial.
Attend a training session to learn how you can help get the word out about an important study that will advance cancer research for colon cancer. The project focuses on significantly decreasing deaths from colon cancer by identifying predictive patterns of biomarkers for early detection and populations at risk for the disease. IU Health Arnett will assist by collecting samples from 75 patients.
To learn more, attend the upcoming Advocate Training Session:
Date: Saturday, May 12
Time: 9 am – 2:30 pm (Breakfast and Lunch provided)
Location: IU Health Arnett Hospital, Room AG410
5165 McCarty Lane
Lafayette, IN 47905
The purpose of this session is to provide you with the information needed to be an effective advocate for medical research and more specifics about the study that is about to get started at IU Health Arnett. The day will start with a light breakfast followed by sessions on research advocacy and peer counseling, the research process and the science behind the study, and patient protection. Lunch will be provided and will be followed by an optional "hands on" lab—"What happens to my samples after they are collected?"
