Hi everyone, nothing new to report – just want to share this quote:
“The evidence is that people with cancer do better if they’re on a (clinical) trial …” from Norman Swan on ABC RN Health Report 9/5/2011
Clinical trials are where a treatment or even a diagnostic test is compared in as non-biassed a way as possible either to a placebo or, in cancer the new treatment’s much more commonly compared to the best therapy already available.
I think patients who are in clinical trials not only have a chance for the latest most promising treatment but also receive more thorough observation and care from the medical team. I feel so fortunate to be on the farletuzumab trial!
