Phase III Clinical Trials.
Phase III clinical trials are used to find out whether a new treatment improves
on existing standard treatments. Knowing about the distinct advantages and
disadvantages of Phase III trials will help you decide whether to pursue
standard treatment or one of these investigational treatments.
The New Targeted
Biological Therapies. There are promising new treatments for breast
cancer and other cancers, including therapies currently available only in
clinical trials. The article is derived from Musa Mayer's book Advanced Breast Cancer: A
Guide to Living with Metastatic Disease, 2nd Edition, © 2001

Responsibilities. As a patient, it's ethical to act with
self-interest as your primary focus but not necessarily your only focus.
Participating in clinical trials may bring up situations in which it isn't
easy to decide what's right.
