NCI-designated cancer center spotlights how AI accelerates clinical trial recruitment

August 12, 2023

However, as the complexity of clinical research increases, and as targeting becomes more precise, it leads to fewer patient enrollments. Cancer center uses AI to accelerate recruitmentA National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center was recruiting patients to a small cell lung cancer trial. Small cell lung cancer accounts for 10 to 15% of all lung cancer patients, making this population harder to find. To identify eligible patients, researchers searched through standardized, structured diagnosis codes known as ICD-10 codes in their EMR system.
