1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends
The main goal for treatment of terminal cancer is usually comfort care, to decrease the symptoms associated with disease, so the patient can focus on spending more time with family and friends.
There are different phases of clinical trial. One should weigh the risk and benefit before participating it, specially the early phase trial when the toxicity and efficacy of a new therapy is unknown.
