The SIOG Organization of the Clinical Activity of Geriatric Oncology Task Force collected descriptive data on cancer care delivery to elderly patients. The results of this survey were published in 2007 (Crit Rev Oncol Hematol 2007; 62:62-73 – link downloads PDF). One of the striking findings was that although the majority of clinicians are willing to recruit elderly patients in clinical trials, such patients are only included in a minority of cases. In this light, it was also recognized that elderly patient enrolment in clinical trials is perceived as more difficult.
