Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio State Univesity Comprehensive Cancer Center – James (OSUCCC – James) Neuroendocrine Cancer Program physicians are nationally and internationally renowned in research and patient care for their one particular cancer. Because of that expertise and understanding of cancer’s complexities and how it acts and reacts differently in each person, the very best outcomes — and the most effective means of treating cancer patients — come from a team approach.

At the OSUCCC – James, neuroendocrine cancer patients have a team of experts that includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, geneticists, endocrinologists, nutritionists and more. Also on that team are neuroendocrine cancer researchers who help sequence tumors to identify key molecules that fuel each patient’s cancer and who then develop drugs that target only those particular molecules. Many of our experts also help write the national clinical guidelines for treatments.

As one of only four cancer centers in the country funded by the National Cancer Institute to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials on novel anticancer drugs, the OSUCCC – James offers patients access to more clinical trials than nearly any other cancer hospital in the country and to more of the latest, most targeted, most effective treatment options — many that are available nowhere else but at the OSUCCC – James.

There are several types of treatment for neuroendocrine cancer. The OSUCCC – James team of subspecialists determine the best treatment for each patient based on his or her specific, individual neuroendocrine cancer. Patients may receive one treatment or a combination of treatments.
