Currently Recruiting: Mesothelioma Clinical Trials

When it comes to effective mesothelioma treatments, options are unfortunately limited. There is no cure for mesothelioma and first line chemotherapy treatment Alimta, is no guarantee.  Many who are suffering from mesothelioma, who have found little or no comfort in traditional treatments, may turn to clinical trials for hope.  Through clinical trials, patients have access to the most innovative and newly designed technologies and treatments designed to help advance medical care. The following are a few recent clinical trials currently underway that are in need of participants.

Clinical trials are more than just determining the success or failure of a new treatment. Those who participate help to advance research and may be offered a specialized treatment for their illness. Results from clinical trials structure how treatment is developed and advances modern medicine.

International Clinical Trials Day was celebrated this past Monday, May 20, 2019. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, encourage them to seek out clinical trials. It could benefit their lives, and the lives of others.
