October 15, 2008 - The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Center of Excellence for Breast Cancer Care today launched BreastCancerTrials.org, a free, non-profit, clinical trial matching service that provides nationwide information for individuals diagnosed with or at risk for breast cancer.
BreastCancerTrials.org is reportedly the only clinical trial matching service dedicated exclusively to breast cancer, with an online database that includes information about clinical trials taking place at more than 1,100 medical facilities across the country. The site is an outgrowth of a successful regional pilot initiated by the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and patient advocates. The nationwide launch of BreastCancerTrials.org is made possible by a grant from The Safeway Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Safeway, Inc.
