Clinical Trials Unit

The Clinical Trials Unit is a not-for-profit organisation that is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Sydney Adventist Hospital. San CTU consists of clinical haematologists, medical oncologists, clinical trial coordinators, clinical trial pharmacists and experienced oncology nurses.

San CTU's first participation in clinical trials commenced in 2005 at the Hornsby premises. San CTU is now a well-established and respected clinical trials unit and have participated in over 100 trials.

The purpose of the unit is to provide all oncology and haematology patients treated at Sydney Adventist Hospital the best possible treatment outcomes through offering them the opportunity and ability to participate in the most current treatment options available in the fields of medical oncology, radiation oncology and clinical haematology.

Trial management is performed by a collaborative group of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, pathologists and radiology staff and is coordinated by experienced clinical trial coordinators. Treatments are either delivered in the San Day Infusion Centre,  the Radiation Oncology Centre or as an outpatient.

We offer clinical trial participation in multi-centre, national and international clinical trials run by pharmaceutical companies and national collaborative groups such as: Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG), the ANZ Gynaecology/Oncology Group (ANZGOG), the Australian and New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate Cancer Trials Group (ANZUP), the Australasian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group (ALLG) along with the ANZ Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG).

Current Trials

We have trials open for recruitment in a number of Haematology and Oncology areas.
