Patient Selection Bias in Oncology Clinical Trials

Randomised clinical trials are the gold standard for evaluating
new treatments and moreover, they have become part of
everyday practice. Many international guidelines recommend
RCT at certain stages of oncology diseases. For example, the
NCCN guideline for Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment

for stem cell transplant. Therefore, it is important that RCTs
provide accurate information that can be extrapolated to all
the target population. The article is written by Maxim Kosov,
