The majority of respondents 61% said that patients should be discouraged from using  off-protocol treatments. A smaller number 31% said they should not be available at all.  More than half the oncologists surveyed said that patients considering trial enrollment should be informed if an investigational therapy is available; 34% disagreed. A total of 26% of respondents thought that patients considering enrollment have a right to off-protocol treatment; 56% said this is not the case.

Their Importance in Developing New Therapies  prnewswire  

Kornhaber said the findings were troubling because clinical trials are such a crucial step in the
development of new treatments and are often the only remaining hope for patients. 

"For many cancer patients, clinical trials present an opportunity to take advantage of promising new treatments not yet available and may offer new hope for patients when the standard treatments are not effective," Kornhaber said. 

She added that most types of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are not curable, yet many promising therapies are being tested in clinical trials to assess if they will delay the progression of disease and/or reduce side effects compared to standard therapies. "
