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.
Wilmot scientists are leading a national clinical trial in partnership with Pfizer to test an experimental drug that may control locally advanced pancreatic cancer or metastatic disease. It's important to speak to your oncologist about clinical trials and eligibility criteria.
