Clinical research is a substantial part of the research activities at the Danish Centre for Particle Therapy. The clinical trials at DCPT involve data collection on treatment response and dose response analyses as well as comparative dose planning studies. The results are implemented in clinical practice to improve treatment protocols and optimise selection of patients who can benefit from proton therapy.

All initiated clinical trials at DCPT are reviewed by a multidisciplinary Clinical Research Committee. The purpose of the committee is to ensure a multidisciplinary pre-evaluation to further qualify research projects by reviewing protocol endpoints and feasibility, study design, ethics and patient safety, data management and methods.
