We are currently working with physicians on a unique clinical trial and research program. If you qualify we will pay for your airfare and accommodations so you can participate and you can receive a free personal visit from a senior member of our team of experienced Mesothelioma lawyers to explain your legal options.. This is a great opportunity to help search for a cure for mesothelioma and help you receive the compensation to which you may be entitled.
Most diseases do not have a single treatment. Some patients may choose to enhance their treatments with new or innovative techniques currently under investigation.
Clinical trials involve the participation of people in medical research. Most medical research begins in a laboratory with studies in test tubes and on animals. Treatments that show potential may then be tried on humans. The only way to know if a treatment is safe and effective is to try it on patients in a clinical trial.
Clinical trials are supported at many organizations such as medical centers, hospitals, universities and physicians’ offices. The researcher will most likely be a doctor, academic researcher or specialist. The researchers compare the effect of the new treatment with standard treatment. Patient receiving the clinical treatment are in a treatment group, whereas patients receiving standard treatment or no treatment are in a “control” group. Researchers assign patients randomly to either a treatment or control group. If you are in a clinical trial and do not know whether you are in the treatment group or the control group, this is known as a masked study. If neither you nor your doctor know if you are in the treatment group or the control group, this is known as a double masked study. A double masked study helps ensure that the perception of either you or your doctor will not affect the study.
Each clinical trial study has specific eligibility requirements such as type and stage of disease, age group, or patient history. If you are interested in joining a clinical trial your doctor must contact one of the trials investigators and provide details about your medical history. The National Institutes of Health and other organizations sponsor trials on various diseases and disorders. You can search available clinical trials at: http://clinicaltrials.gov.
