Animation - Understanding Clinical Trials in Lung Cancer

This animation explains what clinical trials are, how they are conducted, and why they are important for patients with lung cancer. Lung cancer clinical trials are research studies in which people volunteer to help test new treatments, procedures, or ways to diagnose or screen for lung cancer. Clinical trials for lung cancer are needed to find new lung cancer treatments, safer treatments, and more. This animation also provides an overview of study design, eligibility criteria, informed consent, safeguards, the phases of clinical trials, and the potential benefits and risks of participation. Be sure to ask your doctor about joining a clinical trial for your lung cancer. You can ask anytime before or during treatment.
