Radiation Therapy Oncology Group and US Oncology Enter Collaboration to Increase Patient Access to National Clinical Trials
Date:10/16/2008

year.

The collaboration began with 10 US Oncology affiliated practices working as a network; due to interest from radiation oncologists, the number expanded to 14 sites. The participating affiliated practices include: Texas Oncology practices at Sugar Land, Medical City Dallas, Sherman, Methodist Dallas, Klabzuba, and Bedford Harris; Kansas City Cancer Center's North, South, and Southwest sites; Willamette Valley (Oregon) Cancer Center; Central Indian Cancer Center-South; Arizona Oncology Associates-Tucson; Rocky Mountain Cancer Center-Aurora, and New York Oncology Hematology-Albany.

The first US Oncology patient was enrolled in an RTOG trial in March 2008. From March to mid-October of this year, a total of 17 patients from eight fully-credentialed sites have been enrolled, exceeding the minimum requirement of five enrolled patients during the first year of membership. Among the eight sites, an average of six studies are open to enrollment at any given time.

Benefits for patients participating in the radiation therapy trials include increased access to new investigational therapies, the state-of-the-art in standard care, and close monitoring by physicians and other clinicians during the trial.

US Oncology has developed a robust medical oncology research program over the past 12 years. Affiliated radiation oncologists expressed the desire to increase the breadth of the research network and provide patients with access to radiation therapy combined modality studies to offer an integrated care environment for patients.

"We are excited about the relationship between Radiation Therapy Oncology Group and US Oncology," said Vivek Kavadi, MD, medical director of radiation research for US Oncology. "You have one of the nation's foremost cancer treatment and research networks working with the premier organization for radiation trials to provide a clinical offering beneficial to patients and both organizations."
