How Can We Have a Cancer Cure Moonshot if We're Short of Fuel?

Cancer research relies of patients with cancer to participate in clinical trials. However, many patients cite various fears and misconceptions — some supported by physicians - as reasons for why they decline to participate in clinical trials.

Increasing Numbers of Older Cancer Survivors Challenge Clinical Trial Participant Criteria

Improved cancer detection and advances in treatment mean larger numbers of older cancer patients are becoming survivors, combined with demographic trends. But older patients are underrepresented in clinical trials.

Poor Sleep Quality Negatively Impacts Some Adverse Effects in Patients With Advanced Cancer

Patients participating in early-phase clinical trials should be assessed for sleep quality, as poor sleep quality is associated with greater fatigue, symptom burden, and mood disturbance.
