Cancer clinical trials may open new doors of cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment options for you and your loved ones. Oftentimes, these innovative studies can offer better options for specific circumstances than the current standard of care.
Today’s patients discover new hope for better outcomes and quality of life through clinical trials. Future patients benefit from the lessons learned that lead to improved treatment options and cure rates.
A clinical trial – also known as a clinical research study – is designed to answer specific questions about drugs, vaccines, and medical devices, as well as find new ways of using current treatments for other medical conditions. Clinical drug trials help determine if new treatments are both safe and effective, and are the safest way to find treatments that work.
Before testing can begin in humans through a clinical trial, extensive research must be conducted in animal and human cells. If all testing proves successful and promising, sponsors of the clinical trial must receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval before starting to test through a clinical trial.
