Esophageal Clinical Trials

The goal of our clinical research program at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is to provide you with a research option at every step of your disease, from initial diagnosis to long-term follow-up. 

The Cancer Institute collaborates with Benaroya Research Institute and the Center for Digestive Health to offer esophageal cancer studies. Our trials include the use of chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies, as well quality of life and symptom-management trials.
