The Alliance provides tools for colorectal cancer patients and caregivers to find effective treatment options tailored to their diagnosis. We also provide opportunities for patients to share their experience to improve current treatments and research.
Clinical Trial Finder
The Clinical Trial Finder provides a customized list of trial options based on an individual's cancer profile.
The Alliance launched its web-based Clinical Trial Finder, powered by TrialJectory’s AI-based treatment-matching solution, in October 2019. Within one year, more than 550 colorectal cancer patients had discovered clinical trials that fit their individual situations using the finder.
The Trial Finder has also been successful in increasing trial accessibility for patients who usually are not presented with such treatment options.
Seventy percent of Clinical Trial Finder patients were treated in community cancer centers, which have been slow to offer clinical trial options to patients. In addition, 35 percent of those who used the trial finder were under 50, offering access to better care for the young-adult population.
Personalized Treatment Program
The Personalized Treatment Program provides stage III and IV patients access to world-class treatment options wherever they live.
The Alliance is committed to bringing innovation to our community as quickly as possible, with the number one goal of saving lives. Our Personalized Treatment Program, powered by Perthera’s Precision Oncology Platform, uses artificial intelligence to match patients with treatment options that will work best against their specific tumor.
This is the same type of matching completed at world-class medical institutions, but our patients will receive it at no cost, no matter where they live.
Once enrolled, patients and their care teams will receive life-saving resources, including Perthera’s precisely matched treatment recommendations proven to increase survival, clinical trial matching, and the Alliance’s patient support and navigation resources.
The Patient Registry, a partnership with Cancer Support Community, will be an opportunity for patients and caregivers to advance CRC learning by sharing their experiences.
By joining the register, allies can provide valuable insights to influence health-related policy initiatives, inform health professionals of ways to improve communication with patients, and guide programs, such as nutrition and survivorship, to become even more effective and innovative.
