Cancer trial info at your fingertips
AUSTRALIAN Cancer Trials online is a resource for health professionals and people with cancer.
Major advances in cancer survival in Australia have been attributed to clinical trial research, and patients who participate in clinical trials have been found to receive the best patient care available and to have better outcomes.
AUSTRALIAN Cancer Trials was launched in November 2010 and is the first such website in Australia.
The website displays information from the Australia New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTR) and ClinicalTrials.gov. These two registries cover the majority of interventional cancer clinical trials recruiting patients in Australia.
The resource is freely available to people with cancer, their doctors and researchers.
The trials cover all aspects of cancer care from prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, health service provision and supportive and palliative care.
