This has included guidance for sponsors, meetings, recommendations, and workshops. However, despite these attempts, most clinical trials do not recruit participants who accurately reflect the US population. This can lead to biased data and lack of trust in the approved medicine, and it reduces the value of the investment in clinical study.
AEI’s Kirsten Axelsen will host a panel of experts to discuss the root causes of the lack of clinical trial diversity, why it is important, and what policy changes could be made to achieve more accurate trial representation.
