Center for Clinical Cancer and Immunology Trials (CCCIT)

CCCIT coordinates and conducts all clinical trials at the 3rd Medical Department of the Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg. The best and earliest access for the newest drug-based tumor therapy is granted. The CCCIT has been established as an international accepted center for clinical trials with about 6400 patients participating.


The main focus of the CCCIT is to guarantee that patients can access as soon as possible the latest and most innovative cancer therapies from the top field of research. Because of this, patients can get individualized therapies specifically fitted for their unique disease situation, which often will not be available on the market for years.


CCCIT is focusing on “Phase I Trials” to give patients another therapy option when all other possible ways are exhausted. Participation is strictly voluntary and only after thorough information by trained physicians and sufficient time for consideration.

Patients in “Phase I Trials” are closely monitored to ensure their safety and well-being.
