CYCORE – Information Technology Tools Helping With Clinical Trials
Cancer Newsline - 01/02/2012
CYCORE (Cyberinfrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research) was a clinical trial conducted by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of California-San Diego and University of Alabama at Birmingham, that studied the use of sensing devices to wirelessly send health-related data from the patient’s home to the cancer research facility. The purpose of this study is for other researchers to use CYCORE’s technology to gather more detailed information in their own clinical trials. Susan Peterson, Ph.D., M.P.H., lead investigator on the study and associate professor in the Department of Behavioral Science at MD Anderson, discusses the results.
