Q: What is the role of clinical trails in treating breast cancer? A: Clinical trails have always been important to develop new treatments, diagnosis methods and screening tests. People take part in the project voluntarily and can quit at any time. Before joining any clinical trial, the participant must give his or her “informed consent”. However, due to lack of information and understanding, the number of volunteers are small. Clinical trials are usually done at cancer centers, universities, hospitals, or clinics, unless special equipment or technique is needed. A specific plan will be developed to spell out the procedure, items and the goals. The potential risks and benefits must be listed clearly.   Keywords: breast cancer clinical trials     Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=3440 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=3637 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=3034
