How are clinical trials used to treat lung cancer?

ANSWER

Clinical trials are a way to try new medications and treatments that researchers are testing. The goal is to find out how well these treatments work and what side effects they could have. People with lung cancer who participate in lung cancer clinical trials get the most effective therapy available, or they may get new lung cancer treatments being tested for future use.
