Expanding Clinical Trials

Cancer Research Ideas - Expanding Clinical Trials (Archived)

Cancer clinical trials continue to be the gold standard by which new preventive, treatment, supportive care, and other interventions are tested and compared with existing interventions. New clinical trial designs are emerging with the recognition that a single cancer type may consist of many different molecular subtypes and that a given molecular alteration may drive many different types of cancer. At the same time, it is important that more patients have the opportunity to enroll in trials, to ensure that the results of trials are as broadly applicable as possible and that answers are obtained as quickly as possible.

The submission period for Expanding Clinical Trial ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.

Expanding Clinical Trials

Speeding up FDA approvals

Dear All,

 

My idea/comment is simple. FDA has to speed up the process for approving new drugs and treatments, especially for drugs used for late stages cancer. Those patients have little to lose,so no need to waste years testing drugs safety.
