About this item

The concept of clinical trials In older adults is a relatively new field that is now rapidly expanding. Older adults have typically been excluded from mainstream clinical trials. As a consequence, drugs and, to a lower extent, non pharmacological interventions to treat the conditions that affect older subjects are often used without an adequate knowledge of their utility as well as their potential risks. The majority of treatments have to be prescribed "off label" in many older subjects. Therefore it is critical that researchers begin systematically studying the effects of new therapies in older patients as our population ages.

Clinical Trials in Older Adults is the first book to consider the methodological issues underlying the evaluation of new treatments in older people
