Another potential treatment option for consideration is the participation in a clinical trial. There are specific criteria for admission into a clinical trial, as not every clinical trial is necessarily appropriate for all patients with mesothelioma. Some are designed for newly diagnosed, limited disease, whereas others might be for patients with more advanced disease or for those who have already been treated. There are a number of ongoing clinical trials targeting mesothelioma in North America.
More information on how to locate and participate in a clinical trial is available in the Clinical Trials section of our site.
