My oncologist said that he doubts that there are any clinical trials for treatment of my cancer (Uterine Papillary Serous Carcinoma) because it is too difficult to get a decent sampling assembled for a rare cancer. Makes me wonder if it's a matter of economics, as advances in treating rare cancers don't have the impact as advances in treating more common cancers ); less bang for the buck). But how will they ever learn how to treat these rare cancers if they don't ever conduct clinical trials? Have any of you had any luck being included in any kind of clinical trial for a rare cancer? How did you find out about it?
