This feature may be particularly helpful for triple negative and inflammatory breast cancer patients since there is a subcategory for each of these types. This website includes all trials listed in clinicaltrials.gov and cancer.gov as well as some additional trials. It can also provide email alerts when new trials fit your profile.
