Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation
The Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation (Foundation) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation that helps the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology (Alliance) answer important treatment questions through large-scale clinical trials. Through efforts of the Foundation in support of Alliance clinical trials and laboratory research, donors can help find new ways to prevent, treat and cure many types of cancer, including leukemia and lymphoma, and cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and GI tract, and help educate the medical community on methods of cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Here are some recent initiatives supported by the Foundation:
  • New chemotherapy treatments for breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer.
  • New surgical techniques for breast and colon cancer.
  • Genetic studies of breast cancer risk.
  • Molecular determinants of response to therapy for breast, colorectal and lung cancers, and leukemia.
  • Research that improves the quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers.

In June 2011, the Cancer & Leukemia Group B (CALGB) merged with two other NCI-funded Cooperative Groups, the North Central Cancer Treatment Group (NCCTG) and the American College of Surgeons Oncology Gourp (ACOSOG), to form the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology (Alliance). Thus the Cancer & Leukemia Group B Foundation became the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology Foundation to provide financial support for the work of the Alliance.
