Clinical trials research new treatments or procedures. There are many different reasons for being interested in clinical trials. You may decide to participate in a trial for the opportunity to receive a new treatment, which may or may not work, or you may participate to promote understanding of ovarian cancer for future patients, even if this may not directly benefit you.

There are many factors to bear in mind when participating in a clinical trial.  You may find it helpful to have a look at the NHS Choices website, which has a useful outline of things that you may want to consider when  looking at clinical trials

Cancer Research UK also has a lot of useful information about clinical trials on their website. It includes a database of ovarian cancer trials, which you can find here.

The ClinicalTrials.gov website lists worldwide clinical trials.
