Importance of Cancer Clinical Trials: Standard of Care

Patients with no options of treatment really do need access to clinical trials and research projects. In cancer care, clinical trials are standard of care!! Full stop.

If someone has an argument against this, am happy to discuss this further.

It really frustrates me, when bureaucrats think that clinical trials are a waste of time and are taking time away from patient care. How far from the truth is that.

I would urge every patient to ask their treating doctor for access to a clinical trial or research project, even if the same treatment or medication is available as standard of care. A clinical trials is managed very closely and no mistakes are tolerated. Several people keep a watch on the process and the patient gets the best possible care.

Ask your doctor or search online for a clinical trial.
