Understanding Clinical Trials

Doctors and scientist continue to study various forms of cancer to better understand how different treatments may effectively slow, treat, or eliminate the development of cancer in humans. Many times, new treatment methods are tested using what is known as a clinical trial.

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are used to test the safety and effectiveness of newly developed medical devices or drugs before they are recommended for general use. All clinical trials that take place in the United States must be approved by the Health Authority or Ethics Committee before the trial can begin. Clinical trials request volunteers to use the new device or drug so that doctors and scientists can monitor how the device or drug affects the person’s condition.

Are there Clinical Trials for New Mesothelioma Treatments?

Yes. The National Cancer Institute is sponsoring clinical trials in an attempt to discover new ways of fighting mesothelioma. Clinical trials may be a viable treatment option for you if you suffer from mesothelioma; however, it is always recommended that you discuss your participation in a clinical trial with your doctor before you agree to volunteer.
