TROG Cancer Research

is one of the largest cancer clinical trials groups in Australia and New Zealand.

Over three decades, TROG Cancer Research has facilitated more than 100 clinical trials that have helped improve the quality of life and treatment options for almost 15,000 volunteer cancer patients. 

During that time, the prognosis of cancer patients has improved considerably. In the 1980s the cancer survival rate was less than 50 per cent. Today, for some cancers, the survival rate is as high as 90 per cent.

TROG Cancer Research is focused on radiation treatment, for the many types of cancers it can treat.

Our upcoming, current, and past clinical trials have investigated the effectiveness of radiation therapy in treating the following groups of cancers. Our members have also investigated the impact of radiation therapy on symptom management and palliative care.

radiation medicine research

The radiation medicine research team is multidisciplinary, working with TROG Cancer Research members, hospitals, universities, and trial coordinating centres to advance vital cancer research for the community.

Translational research is a key strength of TROG Cancer Research. Initiatives that were once a part of research projects conducted in laboratories and clinics throughout Australasia are now incorporated into standard care in a clinical setting.

radiation therapy treatment

Patients who choose to be part of a cancer clinical trial can be assured that patient safety and radiation therapy protocol compliance is stringently monitored under the TROG Cancer Research Radiation Therapy Quality Assurance (RTQA) program.

As new technologies and techniques are incorporated into radiation therapy treatment, RTQA develops robust radiation therapy planning, delivery, and quality assurance guidelines that ensure compliance and trial quality.

We invite you to explore the cancer clinical trials projects and people leading the fight to cure all cancers with one treatment.
