Both Comet trials posted recruitment updates this past week (5/2) as follows:
Comet 1 displays 190 of 273 centers recruiting...
Comet 2 displays 49 of 55 as either recruiting or active, not recruiting w/ 1 withdrawn
Could anybody tell me why it was so slow after June 2011? Patients quit because they are afraid of being randomized on placebo arm after approval? These trial design may have problem, it will decrease the OS data. If my situation is getting worse, I will surely quit the blind trial and ask my insurance to pay the sure thing, not waiting to be counted as one event.
