A clinical trial is a type of research study that tests health interventions (for example, a new medication) on people.

Clinical trials help connect individuals with new and emerging treatments for ovarian cancer while ensuring utmost safety and as little risk as possible to participants.

The learnings from clinical trials are extremely valuable for medical advancement by answering important questions, such as: “Does this new medication improve outcomes?”, “Are there side effects and how manageable are they?”, and “Does it help people feel better?” This helps healthcare providers to decide what will work best for different people in order to promote their health and well-being.
