Patients seeking more information about clinical trials and how to enroll in them have a new resource, a website (http://clinicalresearchtrials.nih.gov) launched recently by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The site also provides resources for clinicians.
NIH director Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD, explained in a statement that recruiting sufficient numbers of volunteers is a key challenge for clinical trials and that lack of information about what clinical trials are and how to participate may be keeping patients from enrolling.
