To join a clinical trial, talk to a member of your cancer care team. They will know about any current trials for your type of cancer, explain your role in the trial and provide information that details about your protection. Trial participants usually receive the therapy at little or no cost.
If you are considering a trial, consult with your primary care doctor.
