Cancer Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is one of the final stages of a long and careful cancer research process. Studies are done with cancer patients to find out whether promising approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment are safe and effective.

If you have cancer, you may want to talk to your doctor and consider taking part in a clinical trial.  Clinical trials are an option for many people with cancer.
