Chemotherapy is a way to treat cancer using drugs that destroy cancer cells and keep them from growing and spreading. The drugs can be given in several different ways. Most commonly, chemotherapy is given through pills or is injected directly into your vein (infusion therapy).
Cancer clinical trials are research studies for developing better ways of detecting, treating, and eventually preventing cancer. There are also clinical trials for managing the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatments. By taking part in a clinical trial you are among the first to receive new research treatments before they are widely available.
