New Study for People with Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung CancerThere is a new clinical study looking for patients with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer who have already been treated with chemotherapy.

If you’re not familiar with clinical trials, here are some FAQs:
What are clinical trials?Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans. All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.
Why participate in a clinical trial?You will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval. You will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
