Focus on Clinical Trials
June 14, 2013

Clinical trials are key to developing new methods to detect, diagnose, treat and support cancer patients. It is through clinical trials that researchers can determine whether new treatments are safe and effective and work better than current treatments.

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. They are the final step in a long process that begins with research in a lab. Most treatments in use today are the result of past clinical trials.
