METASTATIC BREAST CANCER CLINICAL TRIALS
LANDSCAPE & GAP ANALYSIS
The vision of the Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance (MBCA) is to transform and improve the lives of people living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). This Metastatic Breast Cancer Clinical Trials Landscape and Gap Analysis reflects the key elements of the mission of the MBCA to “unify the efforts of MBC Alliance members to improve the lives of, and outcomes for, those living with metastatic breast cancer and their families through increasing awareness and education about the disease and advancing policy and strategic coordination of research funding – specifically focused on metastasis – that has the potential to extend life, enhance quality of life and ultimately… to cure.”

WHO NEEDS CLINICAL TRIALS?
need clinical trials to understand which treatment works best for certain patients and to determine if a new treatment works better than others.
need clinical trials to make sure another treatment is available to them when they need to try something new.
One of the goals of the MBC Alliance for 2019 is to increase participation in clinical trials
by educating patients and their families about the importance of clinical research.
Advances in metastatic breast cancer research can help people live longer with a higher quality of life,
yet fewer than 1 in 20 people with cancer ever participate in a clinical trial.
To help patients who might be considering participation in a clinical trial, the Alliance has developed this Clinical Trial Checklist for Patients. Use the checklist to be sure you understand all the important information you need to make an informed decision.
