One young mother with pancreatic cancer saw her disease practically disappear. A non-smoker was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and given six months to live -- he lived an additional four years and traveled the globe. A young man received a stem cell implant to cure a condition that now helps him produce healthy red blood cells. All this was possible because of clinical trials.

As research into various conditions and diseases increases, so too does the money going into clinical trials. Global spending on clinical trials is estimated to reach $68.9 billion a year by 2025, according to Grand View Research, a market-research company.

Clinical trials provide an opportunity to get access to medications or therapies not yet available to others. Successful clinical trials have led to patients beating diseases or adding more years of quality life. Patients have numerous questions about getting into a clinical trial.
