What is a cancer clinical trial?
A cancer clinical trial is a research study that examines if new ways of preventing, screening for, diagnosing or treating cancer work better than what is currently being used and is safe. Most clinical trials in Victoria are treatment trials.
Cancer researchers recruit volunteers to participate in clinical trials to test how well new approaches work and to see if there are any problems or side effects.
If the new way is proven to provide a better outcome for people, it may become the standard of care for people with cancer in the future.
