Sanford Health is looking for cancer patients to participate in a clinical trial that will help develop customized treatment options for rare cancers. Adults whose cancer has not responded to the first line of standard treatment or those with rare cancers can participate. Dr. Steven Powell is an oncologist with Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, and says the trial will use genetic material found in cancer cells…..

Powell says that certain genes are linked to cancer growth, and this trial aims at targeting those genes for personalized treatment…..

After the options are presented to patients, Powell says they will have access to different treatments and new drugs to battle the disease. Anyone interested in participating should contact their physician to get in touch with Sanford Health.
