Feasibility of feature-based indexing, clustering, and search of clinical trials. A case study of breast cancer trials from ClinicalTrials.gov.
Searching through a large collection of clinical trials using existing technology is a daunting task. This study extracted 1,437 eligibility features from 80 stage III breast cancer clinical trials and found that it is feasible to develop feature-based indexing and clustering methods for clinical trials to identify trials with similar target populations and to improve trial search efficiency.
