A Word about Research Trials Clinical Research Trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. These trials may use new drugs, new combinations of drugs, or other new treatments to see if they are safe and effective. When an oncologist develops your treatment plan, he investigates clinical trials to see if they could be a part of your plan.
