More about clinical trials
- What is the purpose of clinical trials?
Clinical trials, also known as research studies, are designed to find answers to specific health questions. They often look at new:
- Drugs or a combination of drugs.
- Surgical procedures or devices.
- Uses for existing treatments, such as radiation therapy.
- Ways to help with the side effects of treatment and improve quality of life.
- Who conducts clinical trials?
Clinical trials are carried out by a team of healthcare experts who are dedicated to connecting you with the latest advances in cancer care. Key team members include:
- Your physician, who oversees your care and treatment throughout the study.
- Your nurse or research coordinator, who helps manage your care, provides information about the study, assists you in managing any symptoms and collects information about how the treatment affects you.
- You, the most vital and important part of the team. Your participation and cooperation will enable us to make advances in treatment that can be of great benefit for years to come.
- Who is eligible to participate in a clinical trial?
Your eligibility to participate in a clinical trial will be evaluated by your physician. A clinical trial may be an option for you in combination with your current care plan.
- What questions should I ask my physician if I am considering a clinical trial?
- Is there a clinical trial that I may be eligible for?
- What is the purpose of this clinical trial?
