Clinical trials still have a problem with ethnic minorities

Research, published in the Journal of Women’s Health, that aimed to determine the effects of the FDA’s guidance on the inclusion of women and ethnic minorities has found that although representation of women is adequate, more still needs to be done to include a representative proportion of ethnic minorities in clinical trials.

The study was compiled through the years 2013 to 2015, finding that, of the 97.5% of participants who reported race, white individuals made up 77.2% of the total individuals in trials while ethnic minorities made up the remaining 20.3%.
