Lung Cancer Research Clinical Trials
Today, there are a number of lung cancer clinical studies being conducted around the United States. For many people, the effects of their cancer can keep them from living the life they want to. While there are some lung cancer treatments available to them, in some cases chemotherapy and radiation are not enough to keep this disease from progressing. Through new clinical trials on lung cancer, researchers are discovering new ways to combat this issue, as well as better methods of diagnosing lung cancer following the onset of initial signals (persistent cough and coughing up blood). If you have exhausted all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with the symptoms of lung cancer, then it may be time to try something new.
These lung cancer clinical trials taking place in Alabama are testing new treatment methods, which are currently being developed by pharmaceutical and bio-technical companies. They’re designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised Alabama lung cancer clinical study, you may receive new investigational treatments that may help us all understand your condition.
In many cases patients who could benefit from investigational treatment miss out on lung cancer clinical studies because their doctor isn’t aware of a study in the area. In addition, there are some cases where patients feel they are going through so much they don’t need to be treated like a ‘guinea pig,’ and nothing could be further from the truth.
The type of study being performed by Achieve Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a lung cancer clinical trial in Alabama is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most are more involved and would require some tests and a visit to our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.
Current Lung Cancer Clinical Trials
Achieve Clinical Research is currently conducting a wide array of clinical studies targeted towards certain conditions. You may be eligible to participate in one of our lung cancer clinical trials and contribute to the development and approval of a new drug or treatment. As a participant, there is no cost to you at any point during the study and health insurance is not required. Browse our clinical trials being conducted now to find the study best suited for you.
