Types of Clinical Trials
We participate in three general types of clinical trials:
- Cancer prevention trials aim to find ways to keep cancer from starting.
- Cancer control trials are designed to find new ways to alleviate and control specific side effects of cancer treatments.
- Cancer treatment trials compare standard treatments with new approaches, either using experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies.
Eligibility for participation in a clinical trial is based on a number of factors including age, gender, the type and stage of the cancer, previous treatment history and other medical conditions.
