National Cancer Institute (NCI)

National Cancer Institute (NCI)

As part of the National Institute of Health (NIH), this institute’s website offers a lot of information on the different types of cancer and the available treatments for them, nationwide. In addition, there are many links to other information centers.

Important note about clinical trials in the U.S.A:
If you heard about a new/experimental treatment or drug and you are not sure whether it is under an official study or not, you can visit the NCI’s Clinical Trials page and look it up. Remember that an “experimental treatment” may use as a cover for a doubtful activity purposed to get money from the families without having any medical basis or any formal acknowledgment form official institutes.
In the NCI’s website you can also have a live chat with the institute’s advisors.
