Clinical Trials : Oncology Reports
People with cancer are frequently offered the option of treatment in a clinical trial. In a clinical trial, patients can be certain of receiving excellent treatment with the possibility of receiving additional new treatments that could help them. Their participation also helps contribute to improved treatments for future patients. Clinical trials may include hundreds or even thousands of people. That means it can take a long time to get results. This process is also on-going. As doctors learn and study new information, they add new care standards or replace old ones. Clinical trials are the only accepted way scientists can find out if new treatments work better than standard ones.
