ACS CAN Supports the Clinical Trial Modernization Act (H.R. 8412)

May 15, 2024

Clinical trials are key to advancing new standards of care that can improve survival and quality of life for people with cancer. However, cost to trial participants is often a barrier to their enrollment. The Clinical Trial Modernization Act (H.R. 8412) would increase access to clinical trials by allowing clinical trial sponsors to provide financial support to patients for costs associated with their trial participation, including medical cost-sharing like copays, and non-medical expenses such as travel, parking, food and lodging.
