Who should consider clinical trials for lung diseases?

Patients must be adequately informed in a balanced way so they can give meaningful, informed consent to participate in clinical trials; otherwise, these may not be possible or the patients are likely to refuse enrollment. The benefits of clinical trials may be too abstract for them to feel knowledgeable enough to be the first to seek treatment. For patients to realize the full potential of clinical trials, they need to be informed, to be aware of them, and to realize the importance of taking part in the trial. It is the patients' perceptions of the research and their interaction with researchers that may most effectively guide these discussions. To the extent that patients perceive the clinical trials as a reasonable part of medical treatment, the more likely they will take part.

Centralized evaluation and management systems in combination with other therapies are effective and can improve patient outcomes.
