Dr Antonio Fojo - National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA

Dr Fojo talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about how the value of clinical trials and treatments can be assessed.

Since the rising cost of anticancer drugs appears inevitable, the focus has moved towards assessing the real value of a clinical trial and its outcomes, he explains.

He argues that negative data should be published by law so that unnecessary trials are not undertaken in vain.

Although his expertise are within the American system, he applauds UK body NICE on their ability to assess the scientific and financial worth of different drugs.
