Frequently Asked Questions

What is a research study?

Clinical research studies help researchers and doctors learn more about medical conditions. Studies with drugs help researchers understand whether a study drug is safe and if it works well to treat a certain disease or condition.
 
Each study has requirements for who can or cannot join; this is called the eligibility criteria. You can choose to take part in a study if you meet these requirements.
Will my doctor be involved?
 
Your doctor is a great first resource. Your doctor can help you learn if a study would be a good option for you. If you join this study, you will still see your doctor for routine visits.
Why choose to take part in a research study?
 
Cancer clinical trials are done in hopes of finding better ways to prevent and treat cancer. Volunteers are extremely important for the success of current and future medicine. Finding new and better treatment options would not be possible without study participants.
 
 By joining a study, you can help other people with cancer by adding to existing medical knowledge.
What if I change my mind and decide I don’t want to be in the study?
 
You can choose to leave a clinical study at any time, for any reason.
Are research studies safe?
 
Over time, the government has set rules and regulations to make sure that research studies run in a way that is as ethical and as safe as possible.
 
The doctors and researchers make a plan for each study that follows the rules and focuses on keeping each person safe. This is known as the study protocol.
 
You will be given information about the potential benefits and risks of participating before the study and during the informed consent process.
Is there a chance I might receive a placebo or sugar pill?
 
This study does not use placebos.
 
Placebos (i.e., sugar pills) are rarely used in cancer treatment trials. No one is ever given a placebo when an effective treatment is available to treat his or her cancer. If a trial does use a placebo, patients are always informed before taking part in the trial.
