Hope with Answers: Clinical Trials

It is very important to understand the role of clinical trials in lung cancer treatment. Many people are afraid that they’ll be given a placebo in a clinical trial and that they would miss out on having treatment that might help them. That is not true. It is rare to have a placebo controlled study in oncology. Patients enrolled in clinical trials receive, at the very least, the current standard of care, and clinical trials give patients an opportunity to be treated with the next best treatment discovery.
