BreastCancerTrials.org (BCT) is a patient-centered website designed to increase public awareness and access to clinical trials. Launched in 2008, following a successful UCSF-NCI sponsored research pilot, its mission is to make patient consideration of trials the norm vs. the exception. We believe that all patients should have access to the latest medical knowledge about breast cancer treatment as well as the opportunity to advance breast cancer research.
BCT features online tools to help patients find trials personalized to their situation. These include:
Operating as a non-profit service, BCT lists over 600 studies for people with newly diagnosed breast cancer, metastatic disease, or post-treatment survivors. It includes innovative trials of targeted and immunotherapies as well as observational studies looking at quality of life, genetic mutations, and breast cancer survivorship, accompanied by easy-to-read trial summaries.
