What are cancer clinical trials?
Clinical trials are research studies that help find ways to
prevent diagnose or treat illnesses and improve health
care. When enrolled in these studies, people receive
care that is considered the latest medicine or therapy, but
is not yet approved as standard care. The Cancer Clinical
trials are research studies that test how well new medical
approaches work in cancer patients or people in general.
The study answers specific scientific questions and aims
at finding better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose, or
treat a cancer. Most of the people who take part in cancer
clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to
knowledge of, and progress against, cancer. They also
receive up-to-date care and information from experts.
A Million dollar Clinical Trial
A gift of one million Hong Kong dollars will allow a breast cancer trial, led by the University of Edinburgh, to roll out in China. The gift,
from the W & E Davies Charitable Foundation, will help fund the Supremo trial. The trial will evaluate the effectiveness of radiotherapy
for women who have had a mastectomy. It is run in conjunction with the Breast International Group, which facilitates cooperation in
large breast cancer trials. Visit the link ...Clinical Trial - University of Edinburgh
