Pancreatic cancer clinical study

Can I take part?

What is involved in taking part?

If your doctor thinks you are potentially suitable, they should contact the nearest participating hospital to discuss if you can be invited for a clinic visit to make sure you fully meet the requirements to join the study.  If you are eligible to take part, you will be given an Informed Consent Form that provides more information on the study and the assessments you will be asked to undergo.  If you agree to sign this form, it shows that you understand what the study is about and what you will need to do.

Some things to think about:

  • Participation in the POLO clinical trial is voluntary
  • If you decide not to join the study, you do not need to give a reason for this and it will not affect the care you receive from your doctor
  • If you decide to take part but change your mind, you can withdraw from the treatment or study at any time; your regular healthcare will not be affected
  • If you stop taking the study medication, you will be encouraged to stay in the POLO study on the follow-up program, which means you will still be monitored at regular intervals

How do I find out more?

If you or your family or friends are looking for further information about pancreatic cancer trials, or things you might want to consider when deciding to volunteer for a pancreatic cancer study, you may find the links on the Additional information page helpful.
