About The Study: Researchers found in this systematic review of 155 head and neck cancer clinical trials from 2010 to 2020 that only 57% of the studies reported race or ethnicity. A comparison of these trials with the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) cancer registries indicated that Black and Asian or Pacific Islander patients were underrepresented.

Authors: Linda X. Yin, M.D., of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is the corresponding author.
