Clinical Trials

This page lists all open clinical trials that are specifically recruiting chordoma patients.

Clinical trials give patients an opportunity to receive new, experimental treatments that have the potential to offer more benefit than clinically available alternatives, or to receive clinically available treatments at no cost. In addition to having the potential to benefit from the latest treatments, chordoma patients who participate in clinical trials contribute to knowledge that can guide therapy for future patients and potentially help identify new ways of treating this rare cancer. Before enrolling in a clinical trial it is important to understand the potential risks and benefits, and to discuss your options with your physicians.
