Clinical Trials as a Treatment Option
Clinical trials are research studies carried out in people. They test how well new therapies, medicines or treatments work and whether they are safe and effective. 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 as the standard, but have fewer side effects.
Researchers still have a lot to learn about triple-negative breast cancer, which is why clinical trials are so important. Consider asking your doctor about clinical trials as soon as possible, even if you have not yet started any treatment. Looking into trials earlier in your treatment may mean you're more likely to qualify for one.
Your participation could make a difference in your life and in the lives of many others with triple-negative disease.
