My friend and fellow CLL patient and long-time member of our local Orange County CLL Support Group, Terry Evans shares his real life experience with being in clinical trials. Terry offers practical advice about why and how to choose a clinical trial.
Thank you Terry.
Terry is giving us the personal side of the equipoise issue raised in clinical trial designs. If you haven’t already done so, please read and listen to this interview with Dr. Susan O’Brien on this topic. Here’s a direct link to her blunt ASCO post. It is well worth reading.
We are happy to say that since the scare and stress that Terry faced in the RESONATE trial, today crossovers are becoming the norm in cancer trials.
