Types of GIST Trials

What type of trial are you looking for?

Each clinical trial is designed to study and analyze new interventions for a specific disease or condition. Therefore, each clinical trial is classified into different trial phases and categories. In this data base, GIST clinical trials are divided into three categories: First line, Resistant, and Preventative (Adjuvant). The table below shows the definition of each category and the link to the list of currently recruiting trials. Additionally, GIST clinical trials can also be found by their specific mutational subset, such as D842V and SDH-Deficient.
