Mesothelioma Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are research studies designed to find improved ways to prevent, diagnose, and/or treat mesothelioma. Most clinical trials occur in phases. Generally, a Phase I trial establishes the method for administering a new drug or regimen. During a Phase II trial, the safety and efficacy of this approach are examined. Phase III trials compare the new drug or regimen to a currently standard approach. Should the new treatment be approved, a final phase may occur to examine potential side effects and risks over a longer period of time.
