New targeted therapies are revolutionising cancer treatment – they can turn cancer into a chronic disease. However, they do not work for everyone and some patients, who have initially responded to these novel therapies, become resistant and their disease progresses. There are a huge number of novel targeted therapies in pre-clinical and early clinical trials.
Patient with resistant disease often seek out these trials as a means to stay alive and some patients’ lives have been saved by finding information about such trials on the Internet. Unfortunately, information about clinical trials in progress is often shrouded in a veil of secrecy, and patients find it hard to locate trials that address their specific condition.
