New drug starts at GRU Cancer Center

First patient begins treatment in Cancer Center's newest first in human trial for the drug called NLG919.


As an academic medical center, the GRU Cancer Center in Augusta, GA is actively involved in cancer research for cancer patients.

Clinical trials are the last step in a carefully regulated, detailed scientific process that starts in a laboratory in cells or tissue and are then tested in humans—oftentimes years later and always after strenuous review.

Medical studies are supervised by a local physician and look at every stage of disease, from first diagnosis to advanced disease. All are designed to find, diagnose, treat or prevent cancer.

Behavioral, medical and social sciences research at the GRU Cancer Center is conducted to increase understanding of important health and social problems. It's this kind of research, made possible by people who volunteer to participate in innovative studies, that leads to more effective therapies and treatments for disease, and quality-of-life improvements that impact the way we live, work and play.
