DETROIT—Officials at the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit have announced the launch of a new clinical trials study information portal (SIP) at www.karmanos.org/opentrials.

The SIP website, which is integrated with OnCore Clinical Trials Management System, is used by medical professionals, researchers and the general public to search clinical trials recruiting at Karmanos. The site allows users to easily search, sort and navigate through the many clinical trials available at Karmanos Cancer Institute.

The new clinical trials study information portal (SIP) allows users to easily search, sort and navigate through the many clinical trials available at Karmanos Cancer Institute.

Features include profiles of clinical trial principal investigators, eligibility criteria, a list of studies, location maps and phone numbers of study sites, search fields that include cancer type, investigational devices, and others, and a mobile-friendly design.

Additional features are expected to go live in the coming months.

“The launch of the clinical trials study information portal allows us to better serve our patients and creates greater ease for our physician partners and researchers as they explore Karmanos’ clinical trial offerings,” said Karmanos President and CEO Gerold Bepler. “We are proud to offer more than 800 clinical trials to give patients access to tomorrow’s care today. By creating an easier way to organize information about these trials, we can ensure that these treatments reach all patients who are eligible.”

Karmanos offers its patients exclusive access to more than 250 promising new cancer treatments. Karmanos has patients actively participating in more than 800 clinical trials, which are developed and sponsored by our own physicians and researchers, major pharmaceutical companies or national cooperative group programs funded by the National Cancer Institute. Officials at the institute say one-third of all new cancer drugs were developed with its participation in trials.

In addition to its Detroit headquarters, Karmanos offers 15 network sites around the state.
