Clinical trials exploring novel treatments to mesothelioma are a source of great hope for people who’ve been diagnosed with the disease, and the cancer specialists who treat them. From examining the effects of gene therapies, immune-based therapies, or new surgical techniques to help prolong life or beat mesothelioma outright, people dealing with mesothelioma in Louisiana may find that clinical trials are an appropriate avenue in their treatment plan.
There are usually some out-of-pocket costs associated with clinical trials, but depending on your insurance policy, these may amount to a very small amount of money, or a more prohibitive expense. Things like blood work, imaging, testing, and hospital stays may or may not be covered by insurance. In addition, many clinical trials are conducted at hospitals and research centers outside of Louisiana, and travel costs usually won’t be covered for participants. When costs are a hurdle in participating in a clinical trial, there may be resources to help support you as you support important research.
