In Cancer on Trial Peter Keating and Alberto Cambrosio explore how
practitioners established a new style of practice, at the center of
which lies the cancer clinical trial. Far from mere testing
devices, these trials have become full-fledged experiments that
have redefined the practices of clinicians, statisticians, and
biologists. Keating and Cambrosio investigate these trials and how
they have changed since the 1960s, all the while demonstrating
their significant impact on the progression of oncology. A novel
look at the institution of clinical cancer research and therapy,
this book will be warmly welcomed by historians, sociologists, and
anthropologists of science and medicine, as well as clinicians and
researchers in the cancer field.
