Clinical Trials

Aram Hezel MD

Clinical trials are research studies that directly involve patients. They stem from a need to identify better treatments. They are the most responsible, coordinated way to evaluate the safety, effectiveness, dose, and outcomes for new therapies. Many of today's standard cancer treatments were first proven to be effective in carefully planned clinical trials. Want to participate in a study?
