What Is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. 通过临床试验, doctors find new ways to improve treatments and the quality of life for people with cancer. Researchers design cancer clinical trials to test new ways to:

  • 预防癌症.
  • 发现和诊断癌症.
  • 治疗癌症.
  • Manage symptoms of cancer and side effects from treatment.

通过临床试验, doctors determine whether new treatments are safe and effective and work better than current treatments. Clinical trials also help us find new ways to prevent and detect cancer and improve the quality of life for people during 和治疗后. 当病人参加临床试验时, they add to our knowledge about cancer and help improve cancer care for future patients.


好处是什么 & 临床试验的风险?

For patients diagnosed with cancer, a clinical trial may be an option.

Enrolling in a clinical trial may help a patient get treatment that can help fight their cancer. 病人 enrolled in clinical trials help others to learn more about their cancer, 以及新的测试或治疗方法. There are several things to consider before enrolling in a trial.

The decision to join a clinical trial is a personal one. It is a decision a cancer patient has to make based on their values, goals and expectations - there are benefits and risks when joining a clinical trial.


  • 其他人还无法获得的新治疗方法.
  • Cancer treatment that may be better than what is currently available.
  • 医疗提供者的密切关注和监测.
  • Helping researchers understand a particular cancer and learn better ways to help other people with the same cancer.

Some of the potential risks of clinical trials include:

  • 病人可能会有副作用.
  • 这种新疗法未必对所有病人都有效.
  • The new treatment may not be as good as standard treatment.
  • 病人可能需要更多的诊室和更多的检查.
  • Insurance may not pay for all costs associated with participating in a clinical trial.

How Do I Find a Clinical Trial in Georgia?

病人 should talk to their doctors to see if a clinical trial is available and is an appropriate cancer treatment for their particular cancer type.
