Clinical Trials are studies of new or experimental medicines (or other new treatment). The study is done when there is a reason to believe a new drug or a new combination of drugs may be of value in curing or controlling cancer.
If you wish to take part in a clinical trial, the clinical staff will fully explain to you and your family what is required. You always have an opportunity to volunteer.
