The NIHR Clinical Research Network Cancer specialty has achieved two first global patients, both at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. One was in a myeloma study on 5 April 2017, the other was achieved on 7 September 2017 in a lymphoma study.
The Cancer specialty also achieved a first European patient in a non-small cell lung cancer study on 21 August 2017 at Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust.
Recruiting a first global or first European patient is a key performance indicator for the life-sciences industry in clinical research delivery as it shows the Network can support the rapid set-up and recruitment of studies.
