Enhancing Participation of Under-represented Minorities in Clinical Trials Using a Patient-Centered Website: A Community-Engaged Approach

2017-08-08 14:23:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose pf this study is to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of a culturally and linguistically tailored clinical trial literacy website in increasing likelihood of participating in clinical trials. To achieve this objective,a randomized group design will address the following patient-centered outcomes: willingness to enroll in clinical trials and behavioral intent as well as likelihood of referring others to enroll in such trials) before and after exposure to a culturally-tailored clinical trial literacy website. Health literacy will be measured both before and post exposure to tailored messages. Participants will be randomized into two groups. The intervention group (n=50) will have access to culturally tailored website. Participants in the control group (n=50) will have access to NYU 's standard trial participation website.


Compelling evidence demonstrates racial/ethnic disparities in health and healthcare in the United States. These disparities arise from various factors including unequal access to adequate medical care, perceived racial discrimination, and poor health literacy.The Center for Healthful Behavior Change (CHBC) has been involved in numerous initiatives to eradicate health disparities and have implemented NIH-funded interventions to address inequities in health. Interventions targeting patient-centered outcomes have been suboptimal because of inadequate infrastructure to support equitable contributions from stakeholders (patients, providers, and community leaders) in all aspects of the research process. This is crucial to promote sustainable effects regarding minority patients' ability to make informed decisions about participating in existing clinical trials. This study will address this gap, bringing together academic investigators and important stakeholders to develop a website providing access to culturally tailored videos to enhance awareness of clinical trial, health literacy, thus promoting participation in existing clinical trials.

Tests for measuring loudness recruitment.

A long pro-domain caspase that contains a caspase recruitment domain in its pro-domain region. Activation of this enzyme can occur via the interaction of its caspase recruitment domain with CARD SIGNALING ADAPTOR PROTEINS. Caspase 2 plays a role in APOPTOSIS by cleaving and activating effector pro-caspases. Several isoforms of this protein exist due to multiple alternative splicing of its MESSENGER RNA.

Tailored macromolecules harboring covalently-bound biologically active modules that target specific tissues and cells. The active modules or functional groups can include drugs, prodrugs, antibodies, and oligonucleotides, which can act synergistically and be multitargeting.
