Clinical Trials information on other websites
2012: Doctors Tomasz Beer and Larry Axmaker authored a book titled Cancer Clinical Trials, available in print April 2012. On the Cancer Clinical Trials blog site, you can download an excerpt from the book. The excerpt leads me to believe that the book will be quite informative and readable. This quote from the preface sums up the goals of the authors: “We join together as doctor and patient, as researcher and clinical trial participant, as medical health professional and mental health professional, and as two human beings dedicated to giving you a clear, comprehensive, and unvarnished guide to experimental cancer therapy.” If the rest of the book is as good as the parts that I read, this will be a great resource for Steve’s readers.
