Gynecologic Oncology Trials

NRG Oncology is a non-profit research organization formed to conduct oncologic clinical research and to broadly disseminate study results for informing clinical decision making and healthcare policy. It brings together the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP), the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG), and the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG)—each recognized internationally as a research leader.

NRG Oncology embodies an impressive legacy in the conduct of multi-institutional phase II and phase III clinical trials and a history of undertaking phase I and translational biological studies imperative for oncologic research of the future.

These clinical trials are active at any one time for patients with a variety of gynecologic malignancies, including cancers that arise from the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva. NRG Oncology and the GOG Foundation partner with the Foundation for Women’s Cancer to promote clinical trials participation and provide easy-to-access information about clinical trials that currently are open for enrollment.

Spotlight

Elizabeth Young isn’t afraid to jump for a cause no matter how high. As a survivor of cervical cancer, Young empowers women through skydiving, running marathons and giving back to the cause. This year is no different with her second skydiving event Mother’s Day Weekend.

Awareness

September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month.  After creating the month in 1999, the Foundation strives to bring attention about these cancers through public awareness campaigns.
