Animation - Understanding Clinical Trials in Ovarian Cancer

This animation explains what clinical trials are, how they are conducted, and why they are important for patients with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer clinical trials are research studies in which people volunteer to find ways to improve health, answer scientific questions, and find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat ovarian cancer. They help us develop safe and effective medicines for those who need them. This animation also provides an overview of the phases of clinical trials, safety and patient protections, informed consent, who can join a trial, and the potential benefits and risks of participation. You can also learn where to find clinical trials for ovarian cancer. Be sure to ask your doctor about joining a clinical trial for your ovarian cancer. You can ask anytime before or during treatment.
