Patients are the Essence of Clinical Trials
- Cancer affects all of us, whether we have been diagnosed or know someone that has.
- Each year, more than 1 million people are diagnosed with cancer and it remains the second leading cause of death.
- Clinical trials contribute knowledge and progress in the fight against cancer. Many of today’s most effective treatments are based on previous study results.
- Unfortunately, only about 3% of adults in the US with cancer participate in clinical trials.
The more people participate in clinical trials, the faster we can answer the critical research questions that will lead us to better treatment and preventions options for all cancers!
