Although mesothelioma clinical trials have been generally unavailable to veterans through the VA in the past, this has changed in recent years. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the VA Interagency Group to Accelerate Trials Enrollment (NAVIGATE) program is a partnership between the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Department of Veterans Affair (VA) to facilitate enrollment of veterans with cancer into NCI-funded clinical trials.
According to a statement from NCI, this agreement between NCI and the VA will increase the number of VA Medical Centers participating in and conducting NCI-supported cancer clinical trials. The program is expected to enhance accrual to trials carried out through the National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) and the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP), resulting in more timely trial completion while advancing the health of veterans with cancer.
