How can I find clinical trials for mesothelioma?
If you have mesothelioma from asbestos exposure, you know that only limited treatment exists. However, science is always searching for new ways to treat or cure the disease. If you have exhausted your options for treatment, a clinical trial can test out a new way to fight your mesothelioma.
Your doctor may be aware of current trials and can recommend you for one. But if you would like to research clinical trials recruiting for participants, you can find information from a database provided by the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Clinical trials research new treatment options
As researchers study mesothelioma, they find new methods that may treat the illness. But before they can officially confirm the treatment works, they go through trials that test it. These clinical trials offer new ways for those with mesothelioma to try and treat their illness.
You can find open trials online
Clinical trials usually only take a certain number of participants. And they often have a limited time frame for people to join.
But the U.S. National Library of Medicine has a clinical trials database. You can use this website to search for open trials. It lets you find ones that are available and if they are currently recruiting or getting ready to recruit. You can then consult with your doctor about being a participant.
A clinical trial can give you another option
Surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy may help you fight mesothelioma. But these treatments don’t always work. If you can find a clinical trial that hopes to offer a new method, you may want to discuss with your doctor if you would be a good candidate.
