Medical News / From AAO 2021: US Patient Access to Ophthalmology Clinical Trial Sites Differs by Regions

Access to US ophthalmology clinical trial sites may differ by region, according to new study findings that highlight the disparity of health care access among patients burdened with ophthalmic disease. In new data presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2021 Meeting in New Orleans this week, a team of investigators reported that patients in the Northeast may have better access to phase 3 clinical trial sites for ophthalmic care than other regions. The findings could implicate the validity and value of late-stage clinical trial findings—especially when considering the unique demographic and clinical factors impacting different regions of the US.
