Take our two-minute assessment to start finding the perfect clinical trials for you.
Clinical trials test new and promising cancer treatments to diagnose, prevent, or treat a disease. Doctors use clinical trials to find treatments and improve life quality for patients with disease. Clinical trials help to advance the field for the future by finding better alternatives to standard treatments, often with less side effects.
All cancer treatments go through 10-15 years of clinical trials before they become adopted as standard treatments. By enrolling in clinical trials, you are signing up to receive the latest, most cutting-edge care, with technology and treatments that won’t be publicly available for years.
The goal of all cancer clinical trials is to find better treatments for patients. When you enroll in a clinical trial, you have a team of doctors and nurses dedicated specifically to your care and treatment. Every aspect of your health treatment will be closely monitored and analyzed.
Cancer treatments can be extremely expensive. However, it is free for you to participate in clinical trials. Study sponsors, not the patients, often pay for the cost of clinical trial participation. Any other expenses incurred are frequently reimbursed such as travel and accommodations.
You can be any age to participate in a clinical trial. In fact, 63% of cancer clinical trial patients are 65 years or older.
Many smaller cancer centers offer clinical trials. In some cases, if a particular trial is only available at a big center, you can continue to see your local oncology team for regular care and visit the study center just as needed for the trial.
Much the opposite – most clinical trial participants report they were fully informed of the risks and benefits, felt they were treated with respect and dignity, had a positive experience, and would recommend a trial to others. Many participants felt they received extra attention because they had more attention from nurses and study coordinators.
This is not true at all! There are studies for every stage of cancer, and even studies for cancer prevention. Clinical trials allow access to up-and-coming therapies, and are sometimes best when used as the first method of treatment.
You are in control. If you decide you do not want to participate in the trial anymore, you can withdraw at any time.

Cancer is a word that everyone cringes at. You need services like Massive Bio to keep hope and possible alternatives when doors seem to close. The amount of education is phenomenal, and the staff was very compassionate. I would recommend the services for those seeking that alternative to “Standardized treatment”, not everyone can handle them.
With my recent progession on Lorlatinib, I've been working hard to find a clinical trial that I may fit into. It has not been easy. I am so lucky that recently, I talked to a company that helps people like me. If you register, they will connect you with a clinical trial-even if you don't have progression.
So far, my experience with Massive Bio has been very positive. My initial interaction with Eric was informative and he provide me with the proper forms to be completed. The initial report and clinical trial recommendations was excellent. The report provided a details summary of my complete cancer medical history including test results, chemotherapy treatments (which revealed an error in the history on file at one medical institution), and procedures. My follow up conversation with Kristin Johnston was professional, informative and educational. She spent a lot of time with me reviewing the clinical trial options, answering my questions on my current chemotherapy treatment regiment, and was proactive regarding follow up and next steps. I look forward to working with Massive Bio on my current cancer journey and hope that they can assist me with combatting and winning this battle. Best partner for cancer.
My experience with Massive Bio was professional and satisfying. As a stage 4 cancer patient seeking a second opinion and treatment plan due to recurrence of a stomach tumor, I did not have time to lose negotiating the customary hurdles of my HMO insurance plan. I needed to quickly get opinions of recognized leaders in the field. The concept of a Virtual Tumor Board with quality doctors and health care professionals affiliated with Massive Bio was appealing. I was convinced this approach was worth a try...and I was not disappointed. After meticulously collecting details about past diagnoses, treatments, and tests, a thorough report was submitted to both me and my primary oncologist within days. The treatment plan prioritized strategies and reviewed clinical trials appropriate to my case. The plan was so thorough, well conceptualized, and clearly written that my oncologist and I had only a few questions. Those that we did raise were answered quickly and concisely.
Massive Bio worked in collaboration with my local treating oncologist to analyze my carcinoma based on my personal cancer treatment information. In one week, Massive Bio's Virtual Tumor Board experts provided valuable insight and an informative medical report to my doctor. Collaboratively, we agreed that the clinical trial Massive Bio identified was the best option to move ahead.

Clinical trials test new and promising cancer treatments to diagnose, prevent, or treat a disease. Doctors use oncology clinical trials to find treatments and improve life quality for patients with cancer. Clinical trials help to advance the field for the future by finding better alternatives to standard treatments, often with less side effects. By enrolling in a clinical trial you’ll have early access to new drugs and therapies at any stage in your cancer. Clinical trials could be the preferred treatment for most patients and early access is a major benefit when you’re seeking new treatment options.
We use our Synergy AI technology and a team of doctors and nurses to find the perfect clinical trials for you. This is made possible through obtaining your medical records. To accurately find clinical trials and create a unique treatment plan for you, we need a clear picture of your medical history and cancer diagnosis and treatments. Our database will continue to match you with new trials as they appear to make sure you always have every option available to you.
We match patients to trials based on over 120 different parameters and can provide the most accurate matches to clinical trials. Doctors often only recommend trials offered through their institutions or have too high a volume of patients to do the necessary research to find a trial outside of their location. Many oncologists do not run clinical trials themselves, so we work with them to connect you to the clinical trials that are best for you. Once we go through your records, we work with your doctor to provide you with the best treatment and care.
The length of a clinical trial is determined by many different factors. Your specific treatment and trial will depend on the progression of your disease, the drug’s timeline, and more. The trial could last from a few weeks to a couple of months to complete your treatment. We are happy to discuss clinical trial duration with you for your specific case. Please fill out our contact form and someone will be in touch within 24 hours.
The travel required for your clinical trial depends upon both the trial itself and the phase of the trial you are participating in. While some involve frequent visits and testing, for most you’ll often only have to travel to receive the drug and for follow-up appointments. We are also here to work with you to help with travel and accommodations.
We developed advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology and paired it with an oncology nurse-led case management team. Our Synergy AI platform matches you to clinical trials targeting your specific cancer type and situation. The platform, which contains over 170 custom clinical algorithms, draws on the world’s best clinical research to pair you with the latest clinical trials, and provide you with every viable option. A team of specialized physicians and oncology nurses then go over each of those options to provide an expert analysis and provide you with the best recommendations.
Clinical trials are often no-cost to you. Most insurance covers the cost of any routine treatment included in the trial, and typically, the study drug and any novel testing will be covered by the study itself. The study sponsors will also often help with any travel and accommodation requirements.
Massive Bio preformed a vital role in my acceptance into the clinical trial. There were times when I felt Massive Bio was the only champion I had working toward my acceptance into the clinical trial!
