Clinical Trials: What You Need to Know to Prepare

A clinical trial is when people take part in a medical treatment or try a drug that is still being tested. Because not all aspects of the trial have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, there may be some risks associated with them. For many people however, clinical trials can be a way to get the treatment that they need to overcome or manage cancer.

Mesothelioma is a particularly dangerous type of cancer because symptoms take many years to surface. Although there is no known cure, there are clinical trials available to mesothelioma patients. If you and your physician agree that a clinical trial may be the best way for you to treat your cancer, you may be interested in investigating this option.

Getting Ready

Once you have found a clinical trial that suits your cancer and cancer goals, there are a few steps you should take to ensure that you are getting the best possible treatment. While you are preparing for your trial, you should:

  1. Talk to the physician in charge of your trial to make sure you have all the information you need.
  2. Make sure you understand all the possible outcomes of the trial.
  3. Follow all preparation requirements to make sure that your body is prepared to get the most out of your treatment.

Each trial is different just as each person’s battle with cancer is unique. It is important to do what is best for you during this difficult time.
