Clinical Trials as a Treatment Option
Clinical trials are research studies carried out in people. They evaluate new therapies and compare the new treatments to current ones. These new therapies or combinations may or may not work better than the standard treatment. It’s also possible the new treatments may work as well but have fewer side effects. If you take part in a clinical trial, it is very likely you you’ll at least receive the best known standard treatment.
