Clinical Trials Unit

Clinical Trials are a core service at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and are conducted in close partnership with the BC Cancer Agency, national and international clinical trials networks, and industry partners. These networks serve to enhance enrollment in our clinical trials, while the structure of the Canadian medical system and centralized treatment centres such as ours mean that patient follow-up information is closely tracked.

By combining the genitourinary research programs at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and the BC Cancer Agency, clinical trial patients can participate in a full range of investigational studies.

Our networks have performed numerous co-operative group and industry-sponsored trials, involving well-known pharmaceutical and biotech companies. In addition, this group has sponsored clinical trial submissions to Health Canada and has been successfully audited by regulatory agencies including Health Canada and US FDA.
