AACR supports new FDA clinical research guidelines

The American Association for Cancer Research, the world's oldest and largest organization dedicated to cancer research, enthusiastically supports the new guidelines announced today by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, whose primary goal is to streamline the earliest phases of clinical research for new medical treatments.

As described, the new guidelines are in keeping with FDA's Critical Path Initiative designed to accelerate the approval of innovative diagnostics, drugs and other therapeutics to prevent and treat diseases, including cancer.

"All of the nation's cancer research community has been talking excitedly about 'translational' cancer research, the process by which new discoveries about cancer are developed for human use in cancer detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment," said William G. Nelson V, M.D., Ph.D., AACR's chairperson of the Science Policy and Legislative Affairs Committee and professor of Oncology, Urology, Pharmacology, Medicine, Pathology and Radiation Oncology at The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins University.

"The new FDA guidelines address critical issues in translational research, providing defined pathways for introducing the latest innovations for cancer into human clinical trials, and attempts to modernize standards across clinical sites," he added.
