We call these “infrastructure grants” because they provide support for programs and personnel that are necessary to open and coordinate clinical trials. (No, we’re not building roads and bridges here!).
Clinical trials are vital to getting drugs and new treatments approved, resulting in access to effective medications for children with cancer. In 2021, the FDA used Children’s Oncology Group clinical trial data to authorize pediatric labeling indications for four chemotherapeutics, more than any prior year.
While vital, clinical trials are very labor intensive and require significant resources and staff and to ensure all children with cancer who are eligible for studies can be enrolled on these studies.
Most of these new grants support personnel to do the work to manage clinical trials – to enroll patients, manage data, and all the other “behind the scenes” work.
Research truly is a team effort, thank you for being part of it.
