Clinical Trials
CancerIndex CCW Home Menu> Reseach> Clinical Trials

Cancer clinical trials are controlled studies of people with cancer which are crucial to the development of new and better treatments. Clinical trials answer specific questions about a new treatment or a new way of using existing treatments. Often randomised clinical trials compare the best known standard therapy with a newer therapy to see if one produces more cures and causes fewer side effects than the other.

Note: most of these resources are general/adult cancer related. The treatment of cancer for children can be different to that for adults.
