How does a clinical trial work?

The four phases of a clinical trial:

Phase I – Initial human trials to test tolerability

Phase II – Clinical trials to test the efficacy (small group of patients)

Phase III – Clinical trials to test the efficacy of the new substance in comparison to current standard therapy (large patient groups)

Phase IV – Further studies and observations after the drug has been approved by the regulatory authorities

What are the benefits of treatment in a clinical trial?

Values and findings collected from each patient undergoing treatment in a clinical trial must be comparable. Therefore, both the treatment and the sequence and type of follow-up examinations are strictly defined and must be handled in exactly the same way for each patient. Standardization of treatment and follow-up increases the quality of treatment.

Can I discontinue a treatment within the framework of a clinical trial?

Yes, you can withdraw your consent to participate in a study protocol at any time without giving a reason.

Patient referral

HOPOS supports the idea of treating haemato-oncology patients through clinical protocols, as we believe it is essential to take steps forward in the research of new, more effective, and better tolerated drugs. This can only be achieved if enough patients agree to be treated in clinical protocols. Even the standard treatment that can currently be offered was developed through the participation of previous patients in clinical trials.´
