A clinical trial is a research study designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new cancer treatment options. This type of research improves the treatment of cancer. As a result of these trials, cancer survival rates have increased, quality of life has improved and side effects have decreased for many patients.

How Can I Participate in a Clinical Trial?

We have a number of trials available and will offer one to you if appropriate. Keep in mind that most clinical trials have strict eligibility criteria to protect patients and provide the best chance for success.  Age,  gender, cancer type and prior treatments may be included in  the selection criteria.  That means not all patients are eligible for a clinical trial.

What are the phases of a Clinical Trial?

Phase I trials assess the safety of a new medication or treatment.

Phase II trials also assess the safety of a new medication or treatment, but often measure the effectiveness of those treatments as well.

Phase III trials measure the effectiveness and safety of a new medication or treatment compared to the existing best practice.

What if I Get a Placebo?

Cancer patients participating in clinical trials will always receive a treatment that is equivalent to, or possibly better than, the standard treatment.  Placebo trials are never used when there is a potentially effective therapy available. Your doctor and research team can explain the details of placebo-controlled trials to you during your office visits.

Will My Clinical Trial Work?

There’s no guarantee that your clinical trial will work. However, before every clinical trial starts, the designers of the trial must present evidence that convinces the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the trial is a logical treatment option.

Can I Quit My Clinical Trial?

Participation in clinical trials is completely voluntary. Every participant in a clinical trial signs an informed consent form that outlines the trial’s potential benefits and risks. During the trial, the research team will monitor you closely and help manage any side effects you may experience. You can decide to stop participating in the trial at any time.
