Cancer research is an area where new treatments are being explored for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of different types of cancer. Researchers conduct so called "clinical studies" or "clinical trials" to improve treatment options for the patients of today and tomorrow. These studies are performed to investigate the biological mechanisms of the disease, to optimize the use of existing therapies or to test new forms of treatment or new drugs to find out whether they are more effective or better tolerated. For more information please read our manual "what are clinical trials?"
Patients wishing to participate in clinical studies often look for a central source of information where they can find easy-to-understand facts on ongoing trials. CML Advocates Network is now hosting an inofficial database of current CML trials which have been initiated by academia (universities) or by pharmaceutical companies. This database is run by patients for patients and is set up as a dynamic register in which data are updated on an ongoing basis. CML Advocates Network has taken utmost care to verify the data entered, however, cannot assume any liability for the accuracy or completeness of the information. Patients should consult their doctor for personal advice and/or their scientific contact/study staff for the most up-to-date study information.
