What is standing in the way between Americans and clinical trials?
There are123, 413 registered clinical trials in the United States1 with the majority of participants white males.1Consequently, we lack the diversity to make medicines that work for everybody. Perhaps even more troublesome, just 1% of cancer patients are enrolling in clinical trials as a first course of therapy after diagnosis.2 So, what is keeping them out?
A lack of access, awareness, and trust has caused an extreme lack of inclusivity in medical science.
