'we wanted women in Australia and New Zealand
to have the latest and best treatments for gynaecological cancer'
A committed group of cancer specialists believed the most effective means to increase cancer cures was through clinical trials research, so they established the ANZ Gynaecological Oncology Group in 2000.
Today ANZGOG is the lead group for gynaecological cancer clinical trials in Australia and New Zealand and has implemented 16 trials across more than 51 hospitals.
Now women here have the same opportunities to participate in important gynaecological cancer clinical trials as do women overseas.
Our research is in ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, cancer of the uterus, vulva and vagina.
Our aim is to improve the outcomes and quality of life for women with gynaecological cancers. Apart from clinical trials, we do this by involving consumers and the community in outreach programs and trial development. We also exchange the latest in clinical practice at the Annual Scientific Meeting, provide professional education and publish research results.
We collaborate with the major clinical research organisations worldwide and work closely with the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre at the University of Sydney. ANZGOG trials are investigator initiated.
You will find here information on new trials currently recruiting participants and what it means to take part in a clinical trial. Also the best links for cancer support and cancer fact sheets. This resource is for people affected by gynaecological cancer ... you the patient, your friends and your family.
Cancer specialists will find the membership and research area useful. It gives detailed information on carrying out an ANZGOG trial, training resources, trial updates and international research papers presented at our Annual Scientific Meeting. Contact us for access.
