If you're thinking about taking part in a clinical trial for cancer, you’ll need to know exactly what to expect during the study, as well as the pros and cons of participating, so you and your physician can decide if it is the right choice for you.
Your clinical team consists of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals. This team assesses your health before the start of the trial, gives specific instructions, and monitors your progress during the trial and keeps in close contact even after treatment is completed. It's the role of these professionals, as well as other members of the research group, to ensure your safety during the course of the trial.
