To the Editor: Last week, a close friend began chemotherapy for breast cancer, and this week, my husband is having a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Hardly surprising, given our age and that these are the commonest cancers of women and men. However, it is surprising that despite them both being treated by the best oncology specialists, neither is enrolled in a clinical trial.
