Research

The Pine Street Foundation’s mission is to help people with cancer reach more informed decisions. To this end, we conduct meta-analyses and clinical trials on a variety of topics.

META-ANALYSIS
The Pine Street Foundation conducts meta-analyses in collaboration with researchers from around the world. Meta-analysis is a method of systematically selecting relevant primary research, appraising its quality, and synthesizing the results to arrive at a summary conclusion. In our meta-analysis program, we systematically review past clinical trials to evaluate and substantiate the effectiveness of integrative treatment protocols for a wide range of illnesses. Most recently, our reviews have focused on integrative treatments for some of the most common forms of cancer where conventional treatments have had more limited success.

CLINICAL TRIALS
The Pine Street Foundation designs and conducts innovative clinical trials in collaboration with researchers from around the world. The Foundation has an Institutional Review Board (IRB), an internal ethics board that provides oversight for human research subjects’ concerns for other complementary and alternative medicine researchers. Our IRB is registered with the Office for Human Research Protections, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our IRB number is 3082. Our Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) number is 8970. For optimal ethical review, all of the Pine Street Foundation’s own research projects are independently reviewed by an external and independent Institutional Review Board.
