This video examines challenges and opportunities in getting older patients with cancer enrolled in clinical trials.

In this video, Hyman B. Muss, MD, of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, discusses challenges and opportunities in getting older patients with cancer enrolled in clinical trials, including how some trial designs have barriers that exclude older patients, how these patients are less frequently offered inclusion in trials, and more.
