Abstract

PURPOSE:

The goal of this retrospective study is to describe the clinical trial participant population served at a rural community cancer center in Southwest Oklahoma from 2000-2009.

METHODS:

The medical records of clinical research participants from 2000-2009 were retrospectively reviewed.

RESULTS:

A total of 342 clinical trial registrations had occurred with 276 unique registrations. The demographics of the research participants showed the majority with a high school diploma/GED or higher education level (92.0%), female (62%), and White/Caucasian (77.2%). Enrolled patients were residents from 13 surrounding counties.

CONCLUSION:

The actualization of population-specific knowledge applied to clinical trials may allow the community oncologist to participate in and seek out protocols which are most relevant to his patients which potentially provides them with a more comprehensive cancer care.
