Medpedia Launches New Clinical Trial Platform
Date:2/3/2010

Pushing Relevant Clinical Trial Info Out to Web in Proper Context

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2010 -- The Medpedia Project today announced Medpedia Clinical Trials, a platform for patients and physicians to receive information about the thousands of clinical trials that are in process or about to begin. Other online sources already allow for searching clinical trials, but the Medpedia platform allows clinical trial information to be "pushed" or fed automatically to appropriate contexts. For instance, trial information can show up alongside a Medpedia article covering the same condition, it can appear in a personalized feed of someone interested in that condition, or in a patient community related to that condition. This free resource is available now on Medpedia at http://www.medpedia.com/clinical-trials.

Thousands of people benefit from participating in clinical trials each year and millions benefit from others' participation. But the biggest barrier to completing studies is that not enough people take part in them. According to industry statistics presented to the IOM Drug Forum in October 2009, between 50 and 75 percent of trials miss their recruiting targets resulting in cost overruns or canceled trials. By creating tools that make it easier for patients, caregivers and clinicians to find relevant trials, and by raising awareness of existing trials in context, potential treatments can be tested faster and more efficiently and reach those patients that need them most.

"Clinical trials are among the most important of tools for advancing biomedical knowledge, and improving the human condition. But for this to happen, the trials must successfully recruit their participants, and awareness of the trials must be effectively disseminated," said Dr. David
