What is a Phase 1 Cancer Clinical Trial?
Phase I cancer clinical trial studies are commonly called "first in man." Cancer patients who enroll in these trials have already tried other treatment options. These studies evaluate the dose of a drug that can be given safely without unacceptable side effects and how the drug affects the body. They involve a small number of patients with cancer.
