What’s the purpose of clinical trials for lymphoma drugs and treatments?

ANSWER

New cancer drugs and treatments must be safe and effective before doctors can prescribe them. With lymphoma clinical trials, researchers test the effects of those drugs and treatments on volunteers who have lymphoma. Researchers measure how well a new drug can treat lymphoma, its safety, and its side effects.
