Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that are done to investigate new treatments through the observation of patients. By observing how many patients respond on the tested therapy, researchers can confirm whether new treatments are beneficial for patients.   

Many clinical trials are currently in progress and taking part in a clinical trial may provide valuable information to help researchers make advancements in treatment possible. In some cases, patients who participate in a trial may benefit from receiving cutting-edge treatments resulting in an improvement in a patient’s quality of life that cannot be achieved by standard therapy.   

Clinical trials can be used for different types and stages of pancreatic cancer. Every clinical trial will have enrollment guidelines and requirements for participants to meet which may vary based on the trial. Clinical trials can be considered at time of diagnosis and when making decisions about treatment. If you are considering a clinical trial, it is important to establish that the proposed treatment is a better choice for you compared to your current treatment. It is essential to discuss the trial thoroughly with your physician. Since pancreatic cancer is a rare disease, many trials have difficulty recruiting enough patients and are constantly looking for new entrants.
