Understanding Clinical Trials

There are numerous phases in the development of a new drug therapy. The initial phase of testing occurs in a lab on specific cells, and if proven promising, follows a path all the way through Phase III, in which patients are randomly assigned to treatment with the new drug along with current accepted therapies. The goal is to find a new therapy that is more effective and safer than current therapies. In this video, Dr. Jose Azar—Cancer Specialist at IU Health and Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine—outlines cancer drug development from the lab to clinical trials, highlighting the importance of each phase.
