  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

journalist seeking patients with clinical trial experience for a story

Greetings,

I write for CURE magazine and am looking for prostate cancer patients with clinical trial experience to share their stories for a story detailing new and forthcoming treatment options, including PARPS, changes in our understanding of the best way to use abiraterone (earlier, prior to chemo), and chemo (also earlier), along with newer androgen receptor inhibitors, immunotherapy, genetic testing, and biomarkers.

You may have seen CURE in oncological waiting rooms. We typically interview both patients and researchers to provide a more complete understanding of the experience. To that end, I’m looking for patients who have been or who are currently participating in clinical trials. It doesn’t matter much whether your experience was good or bad or middle of the road, but people willing to share their stories helps to explain how treatments are changing and how that impacts patients.

If you’re interested please email me here: cure@linedried.com.

Regards,

Erik Ness
