Human research is defined as research into human diseases and into the structure and function of the human being, and in which persons are directly involved or in which work is carried out with biological material, data from persons, deceased persons or foetuses (HFG 1st chapter, Art. 2).

The Tumour Centre Hirslanden Zurich is committed to participating in clinical research at a high level. Our doctors make an important contribution to ensuring that our services develop in line with medical advances. We thus offer our patients treatment in accordance with the latest scientific findings.

  • avoid unnecessary therapies
  • provide more accurate information about dose and effect
  • measure quality of life and side effects of therapy
  • test the value of additional examinations
  • disseminate new findings through a worldwide network of collaborating study groups
  • prolong life while maintaining quality of life
