Clinical Cancer Trials

Clinical cancer trials are studies in which people volunteer to take part in the testing of new drugs or procedures. Doctors use clinical trials to develop new methods in preventing, detecting and treating cancer and other diseases. Clinical trials are also used to help answer questions about symptom management as well as find alternative procedures and drugs, which can often be more effective than current treatments.

Join Cheryl Ageton with Avera Cancer Institute as she discusses the various benefits of clinical cancer trials and how they can open the door to new treatment options.
