Clinical trials are essential to the development of new medical treatments, vaccines and diagnostic tests. In relation to blood cancer, research shows the systematic enrolment of patients in clinical trials is one of the most important actions to reduce the number of lives lost. This is why the Leukaemia Foundation is supporting the efforts of ClinTrial Refer to improve clinical trial patient referral and recruitment.
The Leukaemia Foundation is Australia’s only dedicated blood cancer support service, so if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with blood cancer, their expert team will help navigate the emotional, physical, and psychosocial challenges of a blood cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
The Leukaemia Foundation also provides clear, reliable and trusted information, plus a diverse range of practical support services including accommodation, transport assistance and financial support.
Research is another of their passions and they’re committed to funding innovations that drive advancements in new diagnostics, treatments and novel therapies, supporting the careers of promising scientists and clinicians, and giving Australians access to global clinical trials.
Finally, at a national and state level, they engage with governments to advocate for access to
appropriate testing and affordable treatments on behalf of people living with blood cancer.
