Five Myths That Slow Down Clinical Trial Enrollment

SEPTEMBER 24, 2014


Melissa Hogan, founder of Saving Case – an organization designed to help raise awareness of Hunter syndrome and engage people in the rare disease community - recently sat down with Rare Disease Report to list the 5 myths that can deter a parent from enrolling a child in a clinical trial.
 
The 5 myths are:
  1. My child’s doctor will let me know if there is a trial.
  2. My child won’t qualify.
  3. I can’t afford the travel costs for a clinical trial.
  4. I can’t figure out the logistics of making it happen in our family.
  5. A clinical trial is very risky.
