Why clinical trials?
Clinical trials can offer access to the latest treatments, and help researchers to better understand lung cancer and how to treat it. Lung cancer research is continuously advancing and evolving. Participating in a clinical trial is one way to support and help further this research, while gaining access to new treatment opportunities in addition to standard treatments, complementary, and alternative therapies. No matter where you are in your treatment journey, clinical trials can offer the opportunity to explore new options and help current and future patients in the process.
