Getting results of breast cancer study?


Question from MJD: If you are part of a breast cancer study, do you have a right to receive the results in writing instead of just over the phone?
Answers - Ruth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. The details of how information is disclosed are available when you sign up if you decide to participate in a clinical study. That will vary from trial to trial. In some studies patients will be notified of the results. In other trials they will hear about the results once they've become public information, either because they've been presented at a scientific meeting in abstract form or once the results are published.

On Wednesday, September 20, 2006, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Open for Your Questions. Ruth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. and moderator Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. answered your questions covering a wide variety of issues relating to breast cancer.
