As well as physicians and nurses, enrolled nurses and a ward secretary work at the Clinical Trial Unit. The trial physicians and nurses follow the patients taking part in clinical trials closely, in accordance with a separate study protocol.

Study treatments refer to new treatments that aim to improve the results of treatment forms already in use, or to reduce their side effects and find new and even better treatments for cancer.

Early Phase Trial Unit investigates novel medicinal compounds that are early in their development process and have been administered to only few individuals, or are being administered to humans for the first time.

Taking part in the studies is always voluntary, and if a patient so wishes, they can opt for a form of treatment with known effects.
