A Guide To Clinical Trials
This actionable clinical trials guide lays out the considerations when managing your diagnosis to help you with the process and to make sure no step is missed along the way.
Clinical trials test new, promising methods of diagnosing, preventing, or treating cancer, after significant research and trial design has been completed. Clinical trials can also be used to learn if a new treatment is more effective or has less harmful side effects than the standard treatment.
All clinical trials go through phases 0-IV. Phase 0 is the first stage and begins with a few participants. When trials get to phase IV, that means the drug or treatment being studied has been approved by the FDA and is in the last phase before being approved for the general public.
Enrolling in a
Participation in a clinical trial gives you access to the latest treatment, not yet available to the general public. Patients who enroll in trials also have additional care and attention by medical staff, because safety and effects from treatment are monitored closely.
Those who participate in a clinical trial also help advance cancer research for other patients affected by the same disease as them. Participating in a clinical trial not only progresses much needed research but gives patients access to these new innovative therapies years before the general population.
