Explore our medical research, clinical development, and what’s coming down the pipeline..

Clinical Trials


Working closely with the care community, Novartis is currently conducting a number of clinical trials to find new treatment options for cancer patients.

All compounds are either investigational or being studied for new indications. Efficacy and safety have not been established. There is no guarantee that they will become commercially available.

Web Search is a Web-based resource that provides patients, their family members, health care professionals, researchers, and the public with easy access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions. The website is maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
