Oral Presentation: Impact of broadening trial eligibility criteria on the inclusion of patients with brain metastases in cancer clinical trials 

Monday, June 6, 2:24 p.m. PDT

In 2017, a joint research statement was issued recommending that certain eligibility criteria in cancer clinical trials, including those related to brain metastases, be broadened to make trials more inclusive. Unger and colleagues found that these recommendations were associated with a shift in patterns of brain metastases exclusion criteria from conditionally excluded to not excluded. To the researchers' knowledge, this is the first evidence that cancer clinical trials have become more inclusive of a broader set of patients in response to these recommendations. More inclusive eligibility improves trial access and representativeness, increasing trial validity and the pace at which trials enroll.
