Finding Out About Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

Finding Out About Breast Cancer Clinical Trials
The research community is working to discover and evaluate new breast cancer treatments that might greatly improve patient outcomes and, potentially, lead to a cure. Yet many people are unaware that clinical trials are currently enrolling breast cancer patients to test such experimental therapies. Information about these clinical trials and how to participate in them is available by visiting this website. Finding a clinical trial and successfully enrolling in one can be a time-consuming process. But for patients with breast cancer, participating in a clinical trial is often worthwhile, giving them access to experimental therapies not currently available on the market while helping the research community advance its understanding of the disease and how best to treat it.

Where to Find Out About Trials

With the rise of the internet and next-generation information platforms that directly reach out to patient populations, it is increasingly easy for people with breast cancer and other diseases to research, inquire into, and potentially enroll in clinical trials. Companies, universities, and research institutions developing treatments often have contact information available on their websites that people can use to be included in a trial. Often, medical centers conducting the trials and serving as investigational sites also have information available online on trials that are currently enrolling. Trials conducted both in the United States and abroad are registered with clinicaltrials.gov
