To receive these experimental cancer treatments, you will likely be required to participate in research studies or clinical trials. These clinical trials are designed to evaluate new cancer prevention and cancer treatment options as part of a deliberate and comprehensive research process that often takes years. Clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of new or modified treatments in cancer patients using new drugs, unique approaches to surgery and radiation therapy, or various combinations of cancer treatments.
