Can I Participate in a MBC Clinical Trial if I Have Other Health Conditions? - Metastatic Breast Cancer Trial Talk

From the Experts

“Comorbidities” are other medical or health conditions you have in addition to cancer, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Many clinical trials exclude people with certain health conditions other than the condition being studied in the trial. If you have another health condition and are considering participating in a MBC clinical trial, you can contact the research site to ask if you can participate.

Efforts are underway to safely include people with comorbidities in cancer clinical trials so that trials represent all people, with and without comorbidities, who will eventually receive the drugs studied in the trials.
