THE IMPORTANCE OF CLINICAL TRIALS
Why I Participated in a Clinical Trial

THE IMPORTANCE OF CLINICAL TRIALS
Diversity Improves Clinical Trials
To fully understand the safety and effectiveness of new breast cancer treatments, participants in clinical trials must be representative of ALL breast cancer patients.
The importance of clinical trials
People may benefit from breast cancer treatments through clinical trials.
Meet Sandi Spivey, initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995 and with metastatic breast cancer in 1998, as she talks about her personal experience with clinical trials.
Clinical Trials: Making a Difference
Early findings from the Komen-funded RxPONDER (Rx for Positive Node, Endocrine Responsive Breast Cancer) study indicate some postmenopausal women with lymph node-positive, hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer do not benefit from chemotherapy when it is added to hormone therapy. These women may be able to safely avoid chemotherapy and its harmful side effects. In contrast, premenopausal women benefitted from chemotherapy.
Importance of Clinical Trials
People who join clinical trials receive high-quality care, and at the same time are contributing to research that could help themselves or others.
