Effects of Trial Design on Participation and Costs in Clinical Trials With an Examination of Cost Analysis Methods and Data Sources

This paper comprises a series of studies conducted as part of the Cost of Cancer Treatment Study (CCTS). The specific aims include exploring theoretical issues concerning the problem of representativeness in trial design with an explicit investigation of the causes of the under-representation of older adults in clinical cancer trials; comparing sources of data and modeling approaches for estimating treatment costs in health services research; and estimating the impact of clinical trial participation on prescription drug costs.
