Thank you to everyone who has recently expressed interest in Melanoma Clinical Trials being conducted at the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation and the Greenslopes Private Hospital.
For any clinical trial, there are a number of inclusion/exclusion criteria which will determine your eligibility on whether you can or cannot be enrolled into the study.
If you or a relative or friend have melanoma and are interested in finding out about clinical trials that we, or other sites in Australia, are conducting, please see the following information.
All of the currently recruiting clinical trials at the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation, Greenslopes Private Hospital are listed on the below website:
Each trial listed here is cross-linked to a website (www.clinicaltrials.gov) which will also list the basic inclusion/exclusion criteria for each trial.
Your doctor/GP may be able to review these criteria to determine your eligibility for this, or another currently recruiting clinical trial which may be suitable for you. If you are in Greenslopes or Queensland, further to this, you may then ask your GP/doctor for a referral to see Dr Victoria Atkinson at Greenslopes Private Hospital, Greenslopes (for patients with private health cover) or at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane (for public patients), who would be able to further assess your eligibility for a clinical trial.
The below website is also a helpful resource, which will list the location for currently recruiting melanoma trials, as there may be a site closer to you. If you select “Melanoma Institute Australia” in the CLINTRIAL REFER box, this will provide a list of all sites that conduct melanoma clinical trials.
Thank you again for all of your interest. It is only because of the wonderful patients who participate in clinical trials, that we can get the scientific information to allow new drugs to be registered for this disease and then made available to the public.
