The Clinical &Translational Research Center (CTRC), established in 1990 and rated Outstanding in the 2008 CCSG review, focuses on new drug development. This comprehensive 18-bed combined treatment and laboratory unit serves as the primary site for personalized, protocol-based, innovative clinical and translational research. Services provided are research infrastructure and oversight as well as 24-hour phlebotomy/lab support for pharmacologic testing. Other services include specialized processing for DNA and RNA analysis, real-time internet-based tracking of audit time-points, Ei

Public Health Relevance

The CTRC is the primary site of new drug studies for cancer and related diseases, and since 2007 it has activated 274 protocols - including many first-in-man studies. Seventeen (17) drugs approved by the FDA since 2007 were studied in Phase I or II trials in the CTRC. NIH Cooperative Group and NCI protocols represented 11% of studies activated during the grant period and MD Anderson investigator initiated studies comprised 5%. Of the total 4,057 protocol registrations, NIH peer-reviewed studies accounted for 531 (13%).
