What are Clinical Trials?
A clinical trial is a research study that tests different ways of improving people's health. Clinical trials aim to find out if new treatments or procedures are safe and effective. All new drugs are tested in the laboratory first before being tested on people.
Cancer clinical trials are designed to test new ways to:
- find and diagnose
- prevent and
- manage symptoms of cancer or side effects from its treatment.
