Phase 1 Clinical Trials Courageous patients who volunteer to be first in line to take experimental cancer drugs seek to restore their own health while benefiting all of humankind. Monday on the Sound of Ideas, on the heels of The Plain Dealer's week-long series on Phase I clinical trials at University Hospitals, we'll learn about how treatments are tested and eventually approved and how medical science owes a debt of gratitude to a small group of pioneer patients. Join host Mike McIntyre Monday at 9 on 90.3.
