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

des RTOG access to US Oncology's significant patient population, making radiation therapy trials more accessible to cancer patients in the community setting nationwide. US Oncology's strong presence in certain parts of the country helps RTOG expand clinical trial participation into areas where it has few or no enrolling members, giving patients access to trials previously unavailable to them.

"We at Radiation Therapy Oncology Group are always interested in opportunities to expand our portfolio of trials to the greatest number of patients and we are excited that US Oncology's investigators will help us in that mission," said Dr. Curran.

US Oncology affiliated practices participating in the RTOG trials program have increased access to new investigational radiation therapy treatments, and the ability to work with other oncologists and leading researchers to advance the quality of care for cancer patients.

"We're on a substantially strong growth track with the RTOG trials," said Dr. Kavadi. "We hope to have 30 affiliated practices participating by next year, and to become a full RTOG member by early 2010. We're delighted this relationship is going to be a central part of the overall growth for the US Oncology Research network."
