Medical Research is the Start

Medical research is the start of the quest to improve survival and quality of life for patients with cancer and other conditions.

To get potential new cancer treatments from the lab to patients, clinical trials are key.  But in the United States, one in five clinical trials fail because they don’t recruit enough patients to participate.  A recent study found that 75% of patients say their doctors never told them about the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial and that most who didn’t participate were never informed about these studies.
