If you're interested in participating in a clinical trial, talk to your doctor. He or she may know of a trial that is right for your unique situation.
In the United States, the National Cancer Institute has a page devoted to clinical trials. On this page, you can search a database of trials that are looking for participants. You can also call the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4CANCER for information on clinical trials.
Another resource for finding clinical trials is www.BreastCancerTrials.org, a free trial matching service specifically for breast cancer studies. The service allows you to type in your personal breast cancer history to receive trial information that’s unique to your situation. You can use BreastCancerTrials.org on a one-time basis or save your personal history and receive updates on newly listed trials.
If you want to make sure that any trial you consider is close to home, call the cancer center closest to you and ask for information about trials at the center. You can also visit the center's web site and search for clinical trials.
