Clinical Trials

One of the options for treatment your oncologist may recommend is a clinical trial. Clinical trials are carefully designed research studies that answer specific questions regarding the effectiveness and safety of new drugs, combinations of drugs, treatments, surgical techniques, or medical devices. Volunteers with specific health conditions are studied during the trials to determine the efficacy of the new approaches. You may want to consider participating in a clinical trial. They offer access to promising new treatment options before they are generally available.
