Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies to evaluate new drugs or devices aimed to improve treatments and the quality of life of patients. These trials are designed to test novel ways of treating cancer, finding and diagnosing cancer, preventing cancer, and managing side effects and other symptoms due to cancer. Clinical trials are the final step in a long process that begins with research in a lab. Clinical trials are the foundation of cancer screening, treatment and supportive care, allowing patients to receive the newest and most promising therapies.
