Research and clinical trials

All treatments must be fully researched before they can be adopted as standard treatment for everyone. This is so that we can be sure they work better than the treatments we already use and so we know that they are safe.

This section is about research into cancer that starts in your bone (primary bone cancer). If your cancer has spread into bone from another part of the body, it is called metastatic or secondary bone cancer.

Research into primary bone cancer

There are several clinical trials for bone cancer in the UK.
