Radiation Oncology & Clinical Trials

Some clinical studies try to determine if a therapeutic approach is safe and potentially effective. Many large clinical trials compare the more commonly used treatment with a treatment that cancer experts think might be better. Patients who participate in clinical trials help doctors and future cancer patients find out whether a promising treatment is safe and effective. All patients who participate in clinical trials are carefully monitored to make sure they are getting quality care. It is important to remember that clinical trials are completely voluntary. Patients can leave a trial at any time. Clinical trials testing new treatments are carried out in phases:

Phase I - Is the Treatment Safe?

Phase II - Does the Treatment Work?

Phase III - Is the Treatment Better?

Phase IV - Are There Better Ways to Use the Treatment?
