The Cancer Institute works to prevent cancer through education,
prevention and early detection. In addition, Lima Memorial Health
System is part of the Toledo Community Hospital Oncology Program
(T-CHOP), a National Cancer Institute designated Cooperative
Program. This provides the patient the opportunity to participate
in research offered nationally while remaining in his or her local
setting. Hundreds of patients have benefited by participating in
national clinical trials close to home.
One of Lima Memorial's nationally recognized cancer research
trials is Protocol MA 21, sponsored by
the National cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group,
which utilized varying chemotherapies in order to determine the
best treatment for specific types of cancer.
