Black and Hispanic women missing from endometrial cancer clinical trials

Black women comprised only 7% and Hispanic women only 6% of the endometrial cancer clinical trials conducted between 1988 and 2019 that specified the race and ethnicity of participants. During that time period, less than 10% of the trials reported race and 5% reported ethnicity of the women.

“The first step in addressing cancer care disparities involves transparency in reporting enrollment of racial and ethnic minorities in clinical trials among women with gynecologic cancers,” the investigators wrote. “Reporting of race and ethnicity should be required for all clinical trials.”
