Cooperative groups:

Cooperative groups are large networks of researchers, physicians and other healthcare professionals at various public and/or private institutions worldwide that conduct large clinical trials primarily sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) - Funded primarily by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and comprises nearly 6,000 physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. ECOG's mission is to work towards the control, effective treatment and ultimately cure for cancer. Currently, ECOG has more than 90 active clinical trials in multiple adult malignancies.
  • Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) - Promotes excellence in the quality and integrity of clinical and basic scientific research in gynecologic cancer. Approximately 45 clinical trials are currently active through the non-profit GOG.
  • National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) - Has a 50-year history of designing and conducting clinical trials that have changed the way breast cancer is treated and/or prevented. Approximately 5,000 physicians, nurses and other medical professionals conduct NSABP trials. NSABP's presence at local hospitals and medical facilities signifies that state-of-the-art clinical trials are being provided.
  • Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) - A multi-institutional, international clinical cooperative group that conducts radiation therapy research. Currently, RTOG maintains 40 active trials in these primary disease sites: central nervous system, head & neck, lung, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, breast and cervix.
