Brief Summary:
Clinical trial participation has always been substantially skewed toward certain demographic groups. However, there has been little study on whether trial qualities impact participation in either a positive or negative way. The goal of this research is to identify the characteristics that consistently restrict patients' ability to participate in or complete a trial in which they were initially interested. This data will be analyzed via a number of demographic lenses in order to find trends that could benefit future ALS sufferers.
