Some breast cancer patients take part in studies of new treatments. These studies -- called clinical trials -- are designed to find out whether a new treatment is both safe and effective. Often, clinical trials compare a new treatment with a standard one so that doctors can learn which is more effective. People with breast cancer who are interested in taking part in a clinical trial should talk with their doctor.
