Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate new ways to improve treatments and quality of life for people with diseases, like lung cancer. Clinical trials take place in various phases, each designed to answer important research questions that lead to the next phase. The earliest phase of a clinical trial is called a Phase 1 trial where the treatment is usually being tested in humans for the first time. Other phases of clinical trials are called Phase 2, Phase 3 and Phase 4.
