Clinical Trials

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical Trials are research studies that tests new therapies for cancer. They explore whether a medical strategy, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies may also show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people. Patients who participate in clinical trials may not only benefit from these new treatments but also contribute to the body of knowledge that advances the cures for different types of cancer.

Are There Risks to Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials have both potential risks and benefits. They test pre-FDA approved therapies for treatment of disease in humans. The choice of whether to participate in a clinical trial should be carefully weighed.

However, any potential new treatment must undergo vigorous review by the FDA before it can be given to patients. Before clinical trials are approved, an Investigational Review Board (IRB), and ethicists – that typically include both scientists and laypeople – examine the plan for testing the new treatment. This is to ensure the study meets ethical guidelines and does not pose an undue risk to patients.

Why Should I Consider Clinical Trials as an Option?

Scientific research and discovery move so fast for some cancers that the treatment under clinical trials may be better than the current standard treatment. Clinical trial participants can be the first to benefit from these new treatments.

Our Clinical Trial Navigators will help you access advanced cancer treatments that may only be found in clinical research trials.
