A total of seven patients are enrolled in clinical trials (2 in interventional and 5 in non-interventional) for the month of January 2018, all of which will count towards our CoC goal of 4-6% of analytic cases. The KCC’s running three year total of 22 patients enrolled in Alliance Trials satisfies the 2016-2018 goal for Alliance of at least 15 patients enrolled in its trials over three consecutive years. The KCC is preparing to offer a Thrive and Survive class, participants of which will potentially enroll in its Quality of Life Study.
