What are the benefits of clinical trials?

The ultimate purpose – and benefit – of clinical cancer trials is to advance the state of cancer care.

When you sign consent to participate in a trial, you will be informed that the experimental treatment may not benefit you. It could prove to be less effective than the current standard of treatment.

However, if the new drug or treatment protocol proves to work better, you — as a trial participant — could be among the first to benefit.

You’ll also benefit from being cared for by a team of medical professionals who follow carefully designed practices based on the latest cancer care knowledge. These practices are reviewed before and during the trial to assure your safety.

Also, there’s the satisfaction of knowing that your participation will help other cancer patients, now and in the future.
