A clinical trial is a study designed to evaluate a promising new medical treatment.
It includes research done to evaluate new ways to prevent and diagnose and/or treat cancer. At Roswell Park, up to 50% of our patients are eligible to enter clinical trials. Many types of treatment can be tested including:
- New ways of preventing cancer such as drugs, diet, and/or exercise
- New drugs to treat cancer
- New ways to use existing treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy
