Clinical trials

What is a clinical trial? 

A clinical trial is medical research carried out through studies involving people. 

As research into rhabdomyosarcoma brings us new treatments part of the development process is to trial these treatments to assess their impact and effectiveness. Clinical trials are highly regulated and controlled. Find out more 

Is a clinical trial right for you?

You and your medical advisors need to carefully consider all available options and take into account your particular situation in order to decide whether to take part in a clinical trial or not. By all means also carry out your own search to see what clinical trials may be available but do discuss them with your physicians.

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS)

RMS is a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue cancer.  RMS has particularly high incidence amongst infant and adolescent cancer patients.  There is evidence to suggest that sarcomas have a disproportionately high genetic basis, unlike cancers that are clearly very largely due to environmental factors, like lung cancer and skin cancers.


‘1000 faces of RMS’ is a patient and research resource only and we offer no medical expertise or advice. Nor are we qualified to carry out any validation of the web sites that we link to.
