Taking Cancer Care in New Directions
In the last few decades, important progress has been made in cancer diagnosis and treatment modalities, with improvement in the overall survival and quality of life of patients with cancer. However, sometimes the best available treatments may be less than satisfactory in most of the malignancies. Identifying new, effective treatments can be done only through clinical research. It is through this science that exciting new ways to treat cancer are being discovered, very often providing a better quality of life for our patients.
There are thousands of people who have benefited from clinical trials. Over the years many of the drugs that were tested are now considered standard treatment for cancer patients all over the world.
