Dr. Carole Miller

Director, Cancer Institute
Ascension Saint Agnes

miller-carole_5-2014Dr. Carole Miller is putting her years of experience in cancer treatments to help lead trials to study treatments for COVID-19 patients. During the past 20 years, Miller has worked on trials that resulted in changes for cancer treatments.

She is working with researchers at Ascension Saint Agnes in Baltimore as well as other Ascension researchers across the country on clinical trials to bring more options for those COVID-19 patients in care throughout their health system. She is leading a trial using a class of drugs she’s studied for years in blood cancer patients to see if it helps with the “cytokine storm” that complicates recovery for COVID-19 patients. She is also leading the program to bring convalescent plasma to patients with severe infections.

“Now more than ever, it is important to not forget that social determinants of health, such as access to housing, food, medical care and mental heath services determine patient outcome when dealing with life threatening diseases such as COVID-19 and cancer,” Miller said. “At Ascension Saint Agnes we believe we must treat the whole community to provide the best care to our patients.”
