Expert Video - How can I choose a clinical trial for AML?

Dr. Sandra Kurtin, expert on acute myeloid leukemia (AML), describes how to choose a clinical trial, or a research study that involves humans. You may want to try a new medication that is not yet available to the public. Your doctor may recommend joining a trial at a specific stage, or phase, of new medication development. Trials have guidelines for who qualifies to be in them, but Dr. Kurtin emphasizes that there is often one that fits your situation and all patients are encouraged to consider a clinical trial.
