Looking on a forum I frequent, I found a post by Patients Against Lymphoma. It listed many clinical trials around the country. One was a trial at U of M only 50 miles from me. I qualified, and that trial gave me the hope of a better outcome that I was looking for."

How to use ClinicalTrials.gov

Following a keyword search or using one of queries:

A list of protocols will appear in a new ClinicalTrials.gov window.


TIP:  Click the Results on Map tab to find studies near you.

  1. From the list of studies, click the protocol name to open it.

  2. Review the Inclusion and Exclusion information to see if you are eligible to participate.

  3. The protocol will often provide contact information. 

    Feel free to contact investigators directly, but we feel that it's best to have the investigator and
    your treating oncologist discuss the potential of the study to meet your clinical needs -- relative to other options.

  4. If feasible:  Consult an independent Expert for the most objective information about what trials may be appropriate for you.

  5. You can come back and check for updates by clicking the same links again to re-execute the queries.
