Clinical Research Centre Overview

Beacon Hospital Clinical Research Centre was formed in 2016. It was then been transformed into one of our Centres of Excellence (COE) in 2020 with the aim to make us a global trusted hospital with integrity and ethical conduct for clinical research.

Clinical trials and research studies are a key component of the evidence-based research approach of Beacon Hospital’s Clinical Research Centre. With the collective efforts done by our patients, oncology team and clinical research team, we have literally contributed to numerous clinical trials and an impressive number of oncology drugs launching in Malaysia. This has also proudly made us become one of the top clinical trial sites in Malaysia in 2021 in the field of oncology, according to official report by Clinical Research Malaysia (CRM).

Why Us

In line with the long-term focus by the Malaysian Government to make the country a significant global player in clinical research, we are committed to find better ways to treat cancer and help cancer patients.

Apart from the fact that all our clinical studies have secured approval from the Medical and Research Ethics Committee of the Ministry of Health, Malaysia, we also comply with local and international Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standards to safeguard the ethical interests of trial patients.

Ongoing Clinical Trials
To date, our oncology team has participated in numerous clinical trials including in comparing the effectiveness of different chemotherapy treatments; resistance to inhibitors; epigenetic changes in nasopharyngeal cancer; and treatment for advanced or metastatic gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma, among others.
