Breast Cancer and Clinical Trials
What Are Clinical Trials?
Clinical Trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches work in people with cancer. Clinical trials are important options for all patients at all stages of their disease and treatment, including early stage, advanced cancers and for those experiencing recurrence. This research is important to the discovery of new and better therapies and medications. Through participation in a clinical trial, patients have the chance to receive the latest and most innovative medicines that experts think might hold promise for better outcomes.
