Researchers are continually exploring new treatment options for those people diagnosed with lung cancer.
Before treatments are made available to the public, testing takes place to ensure treatments are safe and effective and to identify which treatment options work best.
If a treatment seems promising after years of study in a lab, it is tested in people in studies called "clinical trials."
If the treatment being tested is ultimately shown to be safe and effective, it may be approved to be made available to the public.
RHA offers links to local clinical trials in lung cancer and other lung diseases as a resource for people seeking information about these opportunities.
