Thomson Healthcare Cancer Profiler Used in Study

in learning more about cancer clinical trials. African-American, Hispanic and Asian- American patients expressed a similar level of interest compared to the Caucasian population," said Dr. Maurie Markman, M.D., lead author of the study and vice president for clinical research, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. "These data raise the provocative suggestion that providing information regarding cancer trials may be a particularly rational method to spread awareness of these studies among the non-Caucasian patient populations."

According to the National Cancer Institute, minorities tend to be under- represented in health research studies. The institute suggests that efforts to increase minority participation in health research should focus on improving access to studies rather than on changing people's attitudes toward research.

"Clinical trials can be critical for the development of effective prevention, diagnostic and treatment methods for cancer and other diseases," said Alicia Moffat, vice president, Web operations, Thomson Healthcare. "We are pleased to learn that the data from our online cancer profilers has been helpful in providing people with access to the information they need about clinical trials as well as communicating the availability of this treatment option."
