Physicians discuss why clinical trials are important. When it comes to a disease like pancreatic cancer, even though we have made progress we still have a long way to go to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients - and the best way to do that is to test new treatments and new diagnostic tools through clinical trials. By being in a clinical trial patients may benefit from a new treatment, as well as contribute to science and moving the field of medicine forward.
