At Torrance Memorial Physician Network Cancer Care, we are committed to the advancement of effective new cancer therapy.

Active Trials TRIO-US

The following clinical trials are available at Torrance Memorial Physician Network Cancer Care in coordination with the TRIO-US/Clinical Trials Network. This is a unique opportunity for patients in the South Bay to receive advanced research treatments previously restricted to university cancer centers. TRIO-US/Clinical Trials Network affiliated program places Torrance Memorial Physician Network patients into the promising new era of cancer treatment research. All patients enrolled in these trials are treated at our infusion center in Redondo Beach.

The following studies are subject to change by TRIO-US/Clinical Trials Network and the participating pharmaceutical companies and may not be continually or currently open. Enrollment and participation in these studies is voluntary and patients can choose to withdraw at any time and for any reason. All experimental study drugs are provided at no charge.

Each study has precise entry criteria for enrollment because the researchers are attempting to answer a specific treatment question, within a specific clinical parameter, so not all interested patients will be eligible to participate. It is notable that most of the studies involve drugs that are pathway-specific or targeted, which has been a major trend in cancer research over the past decade as the molecular secrets of cancer growth are revealed.
