What is Science Fight Cancer?
Most patients hear about trials only if their doctor is running a study or happens to know about someone else’s trial. Also, existing sites like clinialtrials.gov have dense jargon that is targeted at academics, not laypeople. As a result, almost all clinical trials are delayed due to accrual issues. This delay is costly for those running the trials, and painful for patients hoping for a new therapy or cure.
SFC serves as a way for patients, especially those in the community setting, to find out about and participate in clinical trials. Our web app is easy to use for both patients and doctors, and updated constantly with every changing trial data.
