Clinical Trials for Cancer Abound
Database lists 1800 active clinical trials
(HealthDayNews) -- If you have been diagnosed with cancer or are close to someone who has, a clinical trial could be a life-saver.
PDQ (Physician Data Query), a comprehensive database produced by the National Cancer Institute, enables a search through some 1,800 active cancer clinical trials open to patients worldwide and more than 12,000 closed cancer clinical trials.
If you are considering participation in a trial, you can search PDQ through Cancer.gov. You can also access cancer information summaries that describe the latest advances in screening, prevention, supportive care, genetics, and treatment.
