Clinical trials are a final and crucial step on the path to developing better treatments for patients…and we now have the opportunity to participate in more clinical trials than ever specifically for WM.
Historically, 85% of all clinical trials face delays and 30% never get off the ground because of lack of volunteers. The good news is that now you have the power to propel clinical research towards breakthroughs WM patients can feel in their everyday lives.
Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
