An investigational product is a new option for cancer treatment that can be taken by mouth, given intravenously, or via injection. The goal of the therapy is to benefit from the scientific progress that has the potential to enhance patient outcomes and quality of life. There are many different medications that can be used for this purpose, and many different cancers that can benefit from clinical research.
