What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are the final stages of cancer research that assess a potential new drug or therapy that’s already been studied extensively in the laboratory. Trials are carefully monitored scientific studies that involve patients and offer the earliest access to these newest treatment options.
Trials are conducted to determine a drug’s proper dose, how well it works and whether it’s more effective than current standard treatments. All drugs and treatment approaches currently used as standard of care were once studied in clinical trials.
Why it matters
Participating in a clinical trial is the only way to access the very latest options, oftentimes years before they become available to other providers. If you have cancer, you need the very best treatment today, not years from now.
At Roswell Park, current clinical trials are studying:
- New immunotherapy drugs such as pembrolizumab (Keytruda) in combination with standard chemotherapy for patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.
