Radiation Oncology at Maine Medical Center actively participates in clinical research through the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG). RTOG is a multi-institutional cooperative organization, of which the principal objectives include:

  • A national cancer study research group funded by NCI headquartered in Philadelphia with almost 30 years of experience in running clinical trials;

  • Comprised of 250 of the major research institutions nationally and in Canada;

  • Currently have 40+ active studies that involve radiation therapy either alone or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapeutic drugs;

  • Interested in quality of life issues and their effects on the cancer patient.

In addition to the RTOG trials we participate in cooperative group clinical trials with a radiation therapy component for children and adults.
