Dr. Heidi Gray discusses participation in clinical trials for ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer patients at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance are initially screened for eligibility to participate in a clinical trial. Trials range from Phase I trials that look at specific novel agents not available for use in oncology, to Phase III trials which are large national trials comparing a standard treatment to a treatment with additional therapy. Patients are matched to trials that are the right fit for them. It is also important that they have a sense of being part of the greater good, as results are often not known for 3-5 years and participating in trials often involve more intense therapy, monitoring, and more frequent visits.
