Should I Choose a Clinical Trial?

Many patients are afraid that when a clinical trial is suggested to them at a treatment for colon cancer, it is automatically bad news. However, as Dr. Dayyani explains in this video, that is not always the case.

“It is important for the patient to know that participating in a clinical trial not only will benefit them potentially, but also thousands and thousands other patients with cancer who will come after them,” Dr. Dayyani explains. “We are striving to cure everybody and that will only be possible through clinical trials.”

However, Dr. Dayyani says that the choice to participate in a clinical trial is absolutely a decision for a patient and their doctor to make after thoughtful consideration.

Dr. Farshid Dayyani earned his medical degree in Munich, Germany at Ludwig-Maximilians Universitaet before completing his internal medicine internship and residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Mass. He then completed his fellowship in medical oncology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Board certified in both internal medicine and medical oncology, Dr. Dayyani specializes in cancers of the genitourinary and gastrointestinal systems.
