At VCU Massey Cancer Center, we are proud and lucky to have some of the best cancer care providers anywhere, who are doing all they can right now to protect our at-risk cancer patients. So it’s no surprise that 42 Massey physicians were recently recognized by their peers as “Top Docs”.
Virginia Commonwealth University researchers began two clinical trials this week on a potential, experimental treatment for COVID-19, the novel coronavirus rapidly spreading across the globe. The trials will be led by Arun Sanyal, M.D., a member of the Cancer Cell Signaling and Cancer Prevention and Control research programs at VCU Massey Cancer Center and a liver specialist and gastroenterologist at VCU Health, and will test whether an investigational drug benefits patients with moderate and severe symptoms of COVID-19 and the virus responsible for the disease, SARS-Cov-2.
At VCU Massey Cancer Center, the health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and have plans in place. Our staff is highly trained at screening for and managing infectious diseases.
