Lung cancer clinical trials
Medications used today to treat cancer and other diseases all went through the clinical trial process prior to approval. It is thanks to patients like you who participated in trials that we have the current treatment options we do for lung cancer. All over the world, researchers are working to find new and more effective treatments for lung cancer and you can be part of that process through joining a clinical trial.
