Summary:This report for the National Cancer Policy Board (NCPB) describes the procedures currently in place in the United States for approving and monitoring clinical trials of cancer treatments.

The paper is intended as a jumping off point for the NCPB to consider some of the pressing policy issues surrounding clinical trials in cancer, though as yet, no specific follow-on projects have been initiated
