Dartmouth awarded lead role in NCI clinical trials network
Date:4/24/2014

(Lebanon, NH, 4/24/14) Dartmouth has been awarded one of 30 grants from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to serve as a Lead Academic Participating Site in its new National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). Award recipients are a select groups of investigators charged with distributing resources in a more effective way across fewer cooperative groups.

The NCTN grant system reflects recommendations from a 2010 Institute of Medicine Report. It streamlines operations to achieve four goals:

  • Faster design, launch, and completion of clinical trials

  • Optimal use of scientific innovations

  • Strategic prioritization of studies

  • Expanded participation of patients and physicians

Through a consolidation of operational resources, the NCTN untangles behind-the-scenes red tape by using:

  • A common IT data management systems

  • One Central Institutional Review Board

  • Integrated specimen banks and informatics systems

Everyonepatients, providers, and family memberswants to see faster access to new treatments for cancer, said Konstantin H. Dragnev, MD, principal investigator for the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center site. This new framework will cut the startup time for a clinical trial by 75 percent in some cases. It removes obstacles we used to face for reporting and oversight, so we can now offer therapeutic advances to patients sooner.

As a Lead Academic Participating Site, Norris Cotton Cancer Center will be charged with enhancing participation in NCI randomized phase three clinical trials, the gold standard in cancer research for establishing new treatments for a five year period. Participating sites provide scie
