About Clinical Trials

clinical-trialsEach time a person with lung disease faces a treatment decision, it is important to explore all options. The American Lung Association recommends that you consider clinical trials as soon as you are diagnosed and every time you have to make a treatment decision.

Clinical trials are carefully monitored scientific research studies. Regulated in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they test how well new medical approaches work in people. Each study answers scientific questions and tries to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat a disease.
