Clinical trials in Australia

To find out the latest clinical trials available for Australian lymphoma and CLL patients, you can view these on the following sites.

ClinTrial Refer

This is an Australian website that was designed to increase participation in clinical trials research. It is available for all patients, all trials, all doctors. The aim is to:

  • Strengthen research networks
  • Connect with referrals
  • Embedding trials participation as a treatment option
  • Making a difference in clinical research activity
  • There is also an app version is a database of privately and publicly funded clinical studies conducted around the world. Patients can type in their lymphoma subtype, the trial (if known) and their country and it will show what trials are currently available.

Lymphoma Coalition

Lymphoma Coalition, a worldwide network of lymphoma patient groups, was formed in 2002 and incorporated as a not for profit organisation in 2010. Its express purpose is to create a level playing field of information around the world and to facilitate a community of lymphoma patient organisations to support one another’s efforts in helping patients with lymphoma receive the care and support needed.

The need for a central hub of consistent as well as reliable current information was recognised as well as the need for lymphoma patient organisations to share resources, best practices, and policies and procedures. With this in mind, four lymphoma organisations started the LC. Today, there are 83 member organisations from 52 countries.
