Does the clinical trial system work for patients and caregivers? - 1260756

I just wrote a post about questions I had after seeing the excellent movie "Dallas Buyers Club", about how patients and caregivers really feel about the clinical trials system. The post is here:

I'd welcome your honest thoughts about whether people trying to navigate in a world of of promising but also potentially dangerous new drugs for a dire medical illness feel that the system works in their best interests or works more against them.

Thanks for any input you have. I'd love comments here, after the post in the link above, or join us for the #LCSM tweet chat Thursday at 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific, if you do the Twitter thing...
