Metastatic Breast Cancer: Sites and Investigators

There was and still is quite a lot of metastatic breast cancer research leading to a large number of investigators and sites with experience in conducting clinical trials in the indication. 

Of course, most of them are not only doing studies in metastatic breast cancer but rather covering everything related to breast cancer. Depending on the scope of the study there are also a variety of specialists involved in the research. This depends also on the standard of care in a given country and the patient pathway. 

Looking at TrialHub we can identify a total of 6314 metastatic breast cancer trial sites that have worked on the indication in the past 3 years. 

Here is a map showing how they are distributed geographically:

On the map, we can see at first glance that there are regions where there isn’t much research going on. These regions are quite underserved which might mean investigators with less experience. 

On the other hand, it could also translate to a great opportunity to work with a research-naive patient population that might be more motivated to participate in your study.
