Barriers to clinical trial participation by older women with breast cancer.

Barriers to clinical trial participation by older women with breast cancer. Although 48% of breast cancer patients are 65 years old or older, these older patients are severely underrepresented in breast cancer clinical trials. This study tested whether older patients were offered trials significantly less often than younger patients and whether older patients who were offered trials were more likely to refuse participation than younger patients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of clinical oncology : official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology Pubmed
