What is MatchTrial?

MatchTrial® is the first free mobile solution for cancer patients that offers information about all active clinical trials on cancer in Spain. With our technology, we make more than 800 cancer clinical trials available to patients and physicians quickly and easily. Our goal is to accelerate patient enrollment in clinical trials, so science can continue to advance.

A meeting point between science and people.

What are the purposes of MatchTrial®?

Well, for a lot of reasons:

  • We believe in clinical research and the value it brings to keep making advances and developing new treatments and medicines that help fight cancer and improve people’s well-being.
  • We want to scientific knowledge to be shared. It’s the only way science can advance.
  • We want patients to be part of the processing of choosing a treatment that will help them overcoming their disease and take part in the decision-making process.
  • We noticed that there is a need for a tool that gives the whole medical community access to alternative ways of treatments for their patients, and helps them to be much more efficient and effective in finding clinical trials that matches with a specific diagnosis.
  • 80% of clinical trials are delayed or cancelled due to lack of patients.¹ We want to become an ally for those sponsors who are generating brilliant ideas to improve our quality of life.

     

  • The world has changed, and technology allows us to make scientific knowledge more accessible.
