There are, at present, some 2000 clinical trials in progress all over the world. For various reasons, however, a good portion of them will not have any impact on oncological practice, mainly because they were poorly designed, inappropriately conducted, improperly analysed, of poor quality or repetitive. There is obviously an acute need for better education in clinical trials among clinicians, so that they will concentate only on significant trials properly conducted, and recruiting a large number of patients. This book presents a sound evaluation of the problems connected with the conduct of clinical trials, with a special emphasis on the need for a strict interaction between clinicians, data managers and statisticians. Most of the crucial problems related to "data management and clinical trials" have been reviewed, and the reader is furnished with an objective picture of a subject which although hostile to many doctors should become familiar to all clinicians who have at heart the duty and desire to combine the progress of science with the safeguard of the cancer patient.
