The Cure Parkinson's Trust(CPT) supports Dame Tessa Jowell's brave advocacy in championing 'adaptive trial' designs and her encouragement of the NHS to further facilitate participation in these clinical trials to allow new drugs or drug combinations to be trialled in people with urgent need. Although these trials may be currently more advanced in the field of cancer medicine they are very pertinent to the progress needed in other areas of healthcare such as Parkinson's -  something CPT has been expounding in its Linked Clinical Trial initiative for some time now.
