What if relevant new information becomes available?
Sometimes, during the course of a research project, new information becomes available about the treatment that is being studied. If this happens, the research team will tell you about it and discuss whether you want to, or should, continue in the trial. If you decide not to carry on, your research nurse will make the necessary arrangements. Upon receiving new information, your own doctor might consider it to be in your best interests to stop the trial treatments. They will explain the reasons if this needs to happen. If the trial is stopped for any other reason, you will be told why.
