A Guide To Cervical Cancer Clinical Trials
Searching for cervical cancer clinical trials can be difficult and understanding all treatment options is overwhelming. Patients with cervical cancer may be wondering what the right course of action is to decide which treatment option and clinical trial is right for them.
It doesn’t have to be done alone.
We've created an actionable guide that lays out the considerations when dealing with cervical cancer treatment and clinical trials to ensure no step is missed and to help manage the process.
Step 1: Understanding Cervical Cancer
Understanding Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer occurs when cancer develops in the cervix, which connects the vagina and the uterus. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer type for women with 12.8% of women being diagnosed throughout their life.
Over 268,000 new cases last year alone. 67% of cervical cancer patients have the subtype HR+/HER2, which makes it the most common by far considering the next most common subtype being HR-/HER2, which includes about 10% of the patient population.
The two subtypes of cervical cancer are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
Step 2: How Clinical Trials Can Help
How Clinical Trials Can Help
There are approximately 400 clinical trials across the US for cervical cancer. These trials are investigating new treatments and detection methods that could save lives in the future such as:
- Targeted biomarker-based therapy
- Immunotherapy for recurrent/relapsed cancers
- Combination radiation with low dose chemotherapy
Participating in a clinical trial not only progresses much-needed research but gives patients access to these new innovative therapies years before the general population.
