Older adults often excluded from clinical trials
Date:2/2/2011

argues Jeremy B. Sussman, M.D., a study co-author and a Veterans Affairs scholar with the RWJF Clinical Scholars program at the U-M. "This is especially true in trials investigating conditions that are common in older adults."

The study authors suggest that clinical trial evidence guiding treatment of older adults would be improved by eliminating upper age limits for study inclusion, by reducing the use of eligibility criteria that disproportionately affect older patients, and by encouraging adherence to recommended analytical methods for evaluating treatment effects by age.

"There's a critical need to ensure that research findings are relevant for our most complex and vulnerable older patients," says Zulman. "Our findings suggest a need for policy change by government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health to increase the representation of typical older adults in clinical trials."
