Clinical Trials

What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a controlled study of a new drug/treatment

*We have included a glossary page below to help explain some of the language & terms used (trial documents can be a struggle for first timers)

If a clinical trial proves a treatment is effective, further trials are often carried out to find better ways of using  the drug for example using different doses or combining it with other treatments.

Unlike skin melanoma, ocular melanoma is an extremely rare cancer that mostly does not respond well for the majority to  imunotherapies currently available. .  It has not unfortunately gotten the attention it needs to find a treatment to manage it which is why asking your medical oncologist about success rates is imperative!

Because there is no agreed standard of care for Metastatic Ocular Melanoma a clinical trial is often a very real and appropriate option for some people.
