If you are considering participation in a clinical trial take a look at this. This is written on an MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome), but the information is relevant to anyone with a medical condition. This edition of Dr. Steensmas quarterly column is about participating in clinical trials. It will be published as a two-part series. In Part 1, Dr. Steensma described the different types of clinical trials and where to find them. In Part 2, he will address concerns that MDS patients may have about participating in clinical trials.
