Reasons for participating
There are many reasons for participating in a clinical trial. You, as a patient, can be sure that your therapy complies with the current medical standard and that it will be documented and monitored very thoroughly and at close intervals. If you participate in a trial, this will subject your doctor to an external quality control. As a consequence, Hodgkin lymphoma patients treated within a clinical trial have a better disease-free survival than comparable patients treated outside a trial.*
Apart from that, your trial participation helps to further improve therapy for future patients.
