More often than not, only a small fraction of patients enroll in a trial due to barriersposed by financial logistics, distrust and travel, to name a few. How do we remove obstacles, clearing the way for patients to have more access to clinical trials? How can both doctors and patients work together to drive research forward? In this Clinical Trial MythBusters program, Lazarex Chairman Dana Dornsife and four-time clinical trial participant and multiple myeloma survivor Reina Weiner examines the barriers to enrollment, evaluates patient needs and shares resources to help guide people through the clinical trial process.
