Cancer clinical trials are research studies that involve people who either have or are at risk of getting cancer. The goal of these studies is to find better ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer so that people can live better and longer. The studies also give researchers more information about reducing cancer risk in healthy people.
Treatment guidelines are developed from the results of clinical trials. Doctors across the U.S. and around the world follow these guidelines so that they can deliver the best possible treatment to their patients.
Every WM treatment used today is a result of clinical trials and the people who took part in them. That is why it is so important to continue this research. The IWMF supports clinical trials because it recognizes that major advances in the treatment or cure of WM can occur only with the participation of WM patients in clinical trials.
