A word about Timing
Many treatment trials, only patients who have not been treated for their condition. Researchers conducting these studies are encouraging to find a better “first line” treatment option for this type of cancer.
* If you are newly diagnosed with cancer, time to consider a clinical trial before you have had surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or other forms of treatment (tests for the diagnosis of cancer are okay). Not delay treatment waiting if you could harm. Talk to your doctor about how fast you need for a treatment decision.
* If you have one or more forms of treatment and are looking for a new treatment, there are many clinical trial options for you. You can search for studies that test a new follow-up treatment can prevent the return of cancer. Or, if your first treatment does not work, you can look for trials of new “second line” or even “third line” treatments.
