"Clinical Trials for the Elderly"
Summer 2006, Washington, DC

Cancer is a disease of the elderly, and the U.S. population is aging. The percentage of GYN oncology patients who are over the age of 65 or 70 years will continue to increase. In general, the number of elderly women on clinical cancer trials has been disproportionately low compared to the incidence of cancer in the population. Whether this is best addressed by vigorous recruitment of the elderly to currently existing trials or by designing separate trials is a matter of some debate. The new field of geriatric oncology is training physicians to answer some of these questions.
