What is a clinical trial? A clinical trial is a study that compares the best available standard of care with a new treatment that might be more effective or even safer.

If a clinical trial proves that a new treatment is more effective than current therapies, then it may become the new standard of care. It is through clinical trials that we make progress in the battle against cancer and that patients receive 'cutting edge' therapy.
