New website matches patients with clinical trials

The creators of a new website that matches patients with clinical trials pertinent to their diagnosis hope that their site can become the "eHarmony of the clinical research world." The site--CureLauncher.com--was created by a forensic toxicologist and a two-time cancer survivor, and tries to go further than other similar sites by "doing the legwork," such as making appointments, for patients, according to the Miami Herald.

"The idea is to help people figure out the clinical trials they qualify for and also to bring cures to the market faster," toxicologist Steve Goldner, CureLauncher.com Chairman and CEO, told the Herald. He added that the site "empowers patients" by "giv[ing] them choices in common, everyday language they can understand." Article
