Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid Cancer Clinical Trials

Patients who participate in cancer clinical trials receive the highest standard of care – regardless of the type or stage of cancer they have. Many of our leading-edge clinical trials are done in cooperation with other institutions nationwide, offering us a clear picture of the most effective drugs.

Our doctors meet regularly to discuss new research developments. The close relationship between researchers and clinicians means that the latest research findings are translated into new treatment approaches as quickly as possible. 

Doctors at UT Southwestern Medical Center have developed and are running several national clinical trials treating the most aggressive thyroid cancers. These studies involve strategies such as targeting genetic mutations in the cancer or using the immune system to destroy cancer cells. 

Our thyroid cancer specialists can help patients determine if they are eligible to participate in a clinical trial related to their condition.
