Clinical trials are a very important part of cancer treatment. They allow us to learn about new drugs and treatments, and how they should fit in with current treatments, in a controlled way. They also help us to learn how best to use the treatments that we have. Clinical trials are important for patients as it allows them to try new drugs or treatments that they couldn't otherwise access. At UCLH we run a large number of clinical trials for both bone sarcomas and soft tissue sarcomas. We have a team of clinical trial practitioners, a paediatric cancer research nurse, and a data manager to run the studies and oversee patients while they are taking part in studies.
