Cancer: clinical trial gives opportunity for patient treatment

Cancer: clinical trial gives opportunity for patient treatment

There are a number of new cancer drugs that are not always available in the public health system or for sale. Those who are undergoing testing or approval in Brazil must undergo clinical trials, involving volunteer participants. Clinical trials are tools for the advancement of medical knowledge. After obtaining or isolating a product that for some reason has been recognized as potentially active in the treatment of cancer, this substance must undergo a series of tests in the laboratory and in animals of experimentation to then be applied in humans and cancer patients, if preliminarily recognized as an effective and not overly toxic agent.
