About Clinical Trials
Thousands of kidney cancer patients have volunteered to participate in clinical trials. Many of these individuals gained early access to cutting-edge therapies, long before they were available to the general public. Our partner, EmergingMed, can help you to quickly learn if you may qualify to participate in a clinical trial.
Finding A Kidney Cancer Expert
Our Nurse Information Service, available by email or telephone, can refer you to experts and will answer questions about the treatment of kidney cancer and the management of side effects from drugs used to treat advanced disease.

Best Places for Treatment
There’s no single correct answer to this question, but our free Nurse Information Service can recommend centers of excellence by geographic region. The nurse can also help you to manage side effects from a cancer drug you are taking, as well as answer most questions about the treatment of advanced kidney cancer. A nurse is available to help you from 9-5 Pacific, M-F (excluding weekends and holidays). If the nurse is busy assisting another patient or family member, please leave a message and expect a return call the next business day.
