Topic: Clinical Trials
Hi...My name is Laura and I am new here. I am writing today requesting to hear some positive stories about member participation in clinical trials.
I myself have been invited to participate in a phase 1 trial--I don't know all the details yet, just that it involves examining my blood and tumour samples for genetic markers that will allow me to be more closely matched to a trial drug to fight my cc.
I guess I am looking to hear some real life stories of participation in trials--including what exactly is involved--for example, my dr indicated it required more visits to the hospital to stay on top of progress. I have been feeling really kind of down in the dumps lately and would love to hear any positive stories you feel like sharing where trials are concerned.
Thanks in advance, Laura
