Clinical Trials

Asbestos treatments

Trials are carried out all over the country each year to try and find better ways of treating cancer and controlling symptoms.

Inclusion in trials depends on a number of factors, researchers will have a brief of suitable candidates and you will need to meet the criteria for the trial to be considered for it.

If you are considering taking part in a clinical trial it is important that you know what to expect and what is expected of you. You may want to ask the following questions when discussing a trial:

  • What is the name of the trial?
  • What is the trial hoping to discover?
  • How will the trial help people?
  • What will I need to do?
  • Will I benefit from taking part in the trial? 
  • How long is the trial expected to last?
  • When will the results of the trial be known?
  • Can I withdraw from the trial at any time? 

If you give your consent to participate in a trial, do not feel obliged to continue with it until the end. You can leave at any time without giving a reason for your decision. If you have been receiving a new treatment as part of the trial and you leave, you may not be able to continue with the new treatment but would be given the standard treatment for your condition.

If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial Cancer Research UK can provide details of these.
