Total Cancer Care® can meet this challenge by reducing the time to match patients to clinical trials.
Here's an example of how TCC helped speed up the testing of a possible new cancer treatment:
A doctor conducting research at a cancer center needed to find patients who had pancreatic or stomach (gastric) cancer for a clinical trial studying a possible new treatment. These patients had to have a certain biomarker (a substance that is made by cancer, or by the body’s response to cancer).
The doctor conducting the research used the ORIEN shared research database to find these patients.
