Oncology Clinical Trials

In a clinical trial, people volunteer to test the most up-to-date drugs, treatments, interventions or tests to help prevent, detect, treat or manage a disease or medical condition.

It usually involves the random allocation of participants to a treatment group that may include either the standard of care treatment plus the new treatment, or the standard of care treatment plus a placebo.

Each trial is conducted under stringent scrutiny and monitoring from an independent ethics committee to ensure patient safety and wellbeing, and the research outcomes may help determine if a treatment is effective, safe and how it compares to existing interventions.
