Oncology Clinical Trials

Options for new, innovative clinical trials

You may be wondering if a cancer treatment clinical trial is right for you. Only you can make that decision about whether to participate in research studies designed to help physicians find ways to improve health and cancer care. There are numerous options available for new and innovative investigational cancer treatments. Although they are unproven as of yet, many can benefit your fight against cancer. Many public and private clinics provide clinical trials.

Each study tries to answer specific cancer care questions and find better ways to diagnose or treat cancer. Doctors use them to learn whether a treatment is safe and effective for patients.

Before making your decision, you should understand your disease and the trials that are available to you. Ask your doctor or nurse how to locate a clinical trial that might be appropriate. Then discuss this information with your doctor, as well as family members and friends, to help you decide what is best for you.
