Clinical trials in advanced prostate cancer
Researchers are working hard to understand advanced prostate cancer and find better ways to treat it. If a treatment looks promising, a clinical trial will be conducted to thoroughly test how effective the treatment is. It can take years for a new treatment to be available through the Medical Benefits Scheme and so the quickest way to access it is by taking part in a clinical trial.
