Expert Video - What are the phases of melanoma clinical trials?
Melanoma expert Dr. Michael B. Atkins explains the series of steps (called phases) of melanoma clinical trials. Each phase is designed to answer important questions that lead to the next phase. Dr. Atkins reviews phases 1 through 4 of clinical trials, from drug safety and effectiveness to comparing a new treatment to standard of care. If the new treatment proves safe and effective it can be approved for use outside of a clinical trial.
