"How to Find Clinical Trials for Experimental Cancer Treatments"

One thing that's encouraging is that cancer patients--patients of all types, actually--have more ability to help themselves than ever before.

Dr. Steven A. Rosenberg, who is chief of surgery at the National Cancer Institute and leads many clinical trials, said: “Fifteen years ago, more than 90 percent of our referrals came from doctors.
