Trials continue to be the key to helping experts deliver tomorrow's medicine today, the bridge to what's next. Evidence has shown that, Hispanics, Asians and African-Americans are not adequately represented in clinical trials in the US. Researchers are now exploring whether various populations respond differently to treatment and what bearing this has on potential treatment strategies.
