Clinical trials seek to deliver better treatments and cures of leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma or related disorders.
These trials may provide vital information and give people access to new therapies not yet funded by governments.
For people considering taking part in an Australian or international clinical trial, it is important to first understand the reasons behind the trial and what it involves, in order to understand the benefits and risks of the trials. Your doctor can guide you in making the decision that is best for you.
