Clinical Trial Support Center (CTSC)

Finding a clinical trial can be overwhelming. Patients are often left to search on their own, leaving them with more questions than answers. Fortunately, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society provides a free service to take this burden of patients and families. Work one-on-one with an LLS Clinical Trial Nurse Navigator who will personally assist you throughout the entire clinical trial process.

Our Nurse Navigators are registered nurses with expertise in pediatric and adult blood cancers. They can help identify clinical trial options for your cancer and unique situation.

How We Can Help

Clinical Trial Nurse Navigators are registered nurses with expertise in blood cancers. Your nurse navigator will:

  • Speak with you to understand your goals and help you decide if a trial might be right for you
  • Help you understand the clinical-trial process including your rights and obligations as a participant
  • Ask you for details about your diagnosis, including your genetic profile, past treatments and responses, your current physical condition and past medical history that might impact your eligibility for certain clinical trials
  • Understand how your financial situation, insurance coverage, support network and ability and willingness to travel far distances might impact your choice of clinical trials
  • Utilize an understanding of your unique situation to provide you with a list of appropriate clinical trials to discuss with your healthcare team
  • Guide you in your efforts to enroll in a clinical trial, including connecting you with trial sites
  • Be available for support throughout your experience in the clinical trial
