Ishwaria Mohan Subbiah, a physician at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses elderly people on clinical trials.

After observing 1,400 patients on phase 1 clinical trials at MD Anderson Cancer, Subbiah realized that patients over the age of 65 had similarly positive clinical outcomes as younger cohorts. However, she also found that while these older patients make up about half of the new cancer cases each year in the United States, they make up a much smaller proportion of patients enrolled in clinical trials.
