This BATI-NCORP program is designed to provide cancer patients, and healthy citizens “at risk”
for cancer, with opportunities to participate in NCI-sponsored clinical trials developed by the
members of the National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) and NCORP Research Bases. These
clinical trials are intended to identify more effective and/or less toxic treatments for the
prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, long-term supportive care, or end-of-life care for
cancer patients. Via the BATI-NCORP, East Bay oncologists can provide their patients, at no
cost, with opportunities to participate in the most advanced and promising forms of genetic
therapy, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments.
