Adapting to more personalized clinical research

This is a great article from the Wall Street Journal about a new approach to clinical trials called “adaptive design.”  It allows researchers to look at study results much earlier in the process, enabling researchers to steer later-enrolling patients into studies where they may receive the most medical benefit based on the genetic profile of their disease.  It’s a more personalized version of clinical research, which, as it expands, will have a positive effect on the image of clinical trials among prospective patients.
