Clinical trials are studies that help evaluate a new treatment.

Clinical trials attempt to answer scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help cancer patients.

An institutional review board (IRB) carefully reviews the study before patients begin participation in the clinical trial.

Also, some studies are reviewed by government agencies, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Anyone wishing to participate in a clinical trial should speak with their physician about treatment options and eligibility.
