New Cancer Treatment Is Incredibly Effective
Researchers from Stanford University looked into a possible cancer vaccine and through their clinical trials found out it is incredibly effective.

Researchers from Stanford University will test the therapy in about 35 people with lymphoma by the end of the year, according to SFGate, a local news outlet in San Francisco. The treatment stimulates the body's immune system to attack cancer cells. In studies in mice with various cancers — including lymphoma, breast cancer and colon cancer — the treatment eliminated cancer tumors in 87 out of 90 mice, even when the tumors had spread to other parts of the body, the researchers said."

Patient information on PET scans in cancer clinical trials
The NCRI PET Research Network has produced this video to give patients an idea of what is involved when you have a PET scan. PET stands for 'Positron Emission Tomography'. The video also explains the science behind a PET scan, and the ways PET might be used in cancer clinical trials. This information is aimed at adults, as the process for PET scans in children is different, and covers the general principles of having a scan -- it does not replace individualised information that you receive from your doctor or nurse. 2012.

"I'm Cancer Free" After Melanoma Clinical Trial - Lehigh Valley Health Network
Richard Dey was given just months to live after his melanoma cancer returned. His oncologist told him his only hope was a clinical trial. Research online revealed the trial was available at two locations in Pennsylvania. After meeting hematology oncologist Suresh Nair, MD, at Lehigh Valley Health Network, Richard began treatments with two immunotherapy medications and is now in remission.

Clinical Trials for Bladder Cancer
Clinical Trials for Bladder Cancer. A clinical trial is a study that evaluates how well a new medical intervention works. Clinical trials can study treatments, screening procedures, and prevention methods. They’re important to cancer research because they allow doctors and scientists to learn about new cancer treatments. These new treatments may help patients who weren’t treated successfully with standard therapies. Clinical trials can also get newer, more effective, less toxic treatments approved for all cancer patients. Deciding to participate in a clinical trial can be intimidating. But it’s important to remember that standard therapies are only available because patients were willing to participate in a clinical trial. What are the stages of a clinical trial?. Clinical trials have four stages or phases that are usually conducted when studying possible treatments or drugs. The higher the phase, the more information there is on the safety and effectiveness of the drug. *Phase 1: This is the first step in testing any investigational drug in humans. It’s usually the first time the drug or treatment has been given to humans. Normally, the treatment is given only to a small group of people. Phase 1 is for evaluating the treatment’s safety, determining a safe and tolerable dosage range, and identifying possible side effects. *Phase 2: During phase 2, the drug or treatment is given to a larger group of people. This helps researchers to better understand its safety and effectiveness. *Phase 3: This phase focuses on the effectiveness of the drug or treatment. It usually involves comparing the experimental treatment to the current standard treatment. Phase 3 trials usually involve a large amount of people. *Phase 4: This phase usually takes place after the treatment or drug has been approved for standard use. It further evaluates the long-term safety and effectiveness of a drug. Phase 4 likely has numerous participants from multiple treatment centers. Where can I find a clinical trial?. Your best resource for finding a trial that’s right for you may be asking your doctor. Many doctors keep up with ongoing research and may know of your options for clinical trials. If you’re considering looking into clinical trials as possible treatment options, let your doctor know. Many websites are available to help patients find clinical trials that might be appropriate for them. Some of these websites are cancer specific. Others help patients with any diagnosis find a trial for them. Examples include: *National Cancer Institute. *Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. *NIH Clinical Trials Registry. *American Cancer Society Clinical Trials Matching Service. How do I know if I can participate in a clinical trial?. Clinical trials will share their inclusion criteria openly. You must meet certain criteria to be a participant. Some trials may also give a list of exclusion criteria. Meeting anything on the exclusion criteria list would mean someone isn’t eligible to participate. Before participating in a clinical trial, the research team will ask you many questions to make sure you meet their criteria. If I join a clinical trial for a treatment, is there a chance I may be given a placebo instead? A placebo is a harmless treatment (sometimes called a sugar pill). When placebos are used in clinical trials, the participants are usually randomly assigned to receive either the experimental drug or a placebo. Most often, the trial participants will not be told whether they’ll receive the study drug or the placebo. This is called a blind study. In some cases, the scientist will also not know which participant will receive which drug. This is called a double blind study. The effects of the experimental drug or treatment are then compared to the effects of the placebo. This experimental design removes any psychological impacts on outcomes. This lets researchers more accurately test the effects and side effects of the drug or treatment. Placebos are used very rarely in cancer clinical trials. Instead of giving a placebo, participants typically either get the experimental treatment or the “standard therapy.” The standard therapy is the recommended treatment for their specific cancer. This lets researchers see the impact of the experimental treatment, but ensures all participants get at least the standard treatment for their cancer. Will my insurance cover the cost of a clinical trial?. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act mandates that most insurance companies cover the routine patient costs from clinical trials, as long as the following criteria are met: All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

What Brain Cancer Patients Should Know about Clinical Trials
With the incidence of brain cancer on the rise, clinical trials are a great tool for the investigation of safety and efficacy of various drugs in the human system, with the propensity to prevent and rid patients of disease. Many aspects of this topic should be taken into account including the patients’ perspective, which can often become secondary to the drug’s success or marketability. This video focuses on the importance of clinical trials and resources available to brain cancer patients and their families from the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. As indicated by a 2017 study (DasMahapatra et. al), patients are willing to enrol into clinical trials upon receiving detailed information. This video addresses patients’ concerns and provides them with support and research-based knowledge to make an informed decision regarding whether they wish to participate in a clinical trial.

Clinical trial was the right choice for lung cancer survivor
When Georgia Dominick was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic lung cancer in Aug. 2014, an Alabama oncologist told her she only had a year left to live. But Georgia didn’t accept that prognosis and came to MD Anderson instead. Here, she took part in a clinical trial involving a new immunotherapy drug for people with her exact type of cancer. She is now two years post-diagnosis, and is considered in remission. “If I had the choice of going anywhere else in the world for free, I would stay right here,” she says. MD Anderson offers many clinical trials for all different cancers.
