Dr. Kekoa Taparra and team evaluated 364 Phase 2/3 trials in 4 top journals.

  • 29% didn’t report race/ethnicity at all.
  • For an article that reported, representation of American Indian/Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian OR Other Pacific Islander pts was essentially.

Proud of this work by Dr. Kekoa Taparra done (in part) during his JCO Oncology Practice Editorial Fellowship under the mentoring of Dr. Chirag Shah.
