When should I consider a clinical trial?

 

This 6 minute YouTube video answers this question.

A couple more videos about Clinical Trials

 

What are clinical trials? This short animation (1:26 minutes) from Cancer Research UK explains what clinical trials are, including the difference between phase one, two and three trials.

 

 

A slightly longer video (4:50 minutes) from Cancer Research UK outlining what a clinical trial involves for patients.

 

 

For those who like written information, rather than videos, here's a booklet on Clinical Trials from the US National Cancer Institute, including a list of questions to ask about a clinical trial that you may be considering: http://www.cancer.gov/publications/patient-education/CRS.pdf
