  • Clinical trials are scientific studies designed to find better ways to treat cancer, detect cancer, prevent cancer, and manage symptoms and side effects.

 

  • Improved survival and quality of life for today’s colon cancer patients are the result of clinical trials.

 

  • Clinical trials are often conducted at the best medical institutions in the country. Participation in clinical trials might help grant you access to some of the leading oncologists and facilities.

 

  • We recommend talking to your doctor about clinical trials soon after diagnosis.

 

  • The National Cancer Institute has an outstanding web resource for general clinical trial info and a place to search for trials that may be right for you. There is also a helpful video guide  that will teach you how conduct an effective search.

 

  • If you have any questions about clinical trials email us, erin.sandene@chris4life.org, or call the NCI at 1-800-4-CANCER to speak with a qualified person.
