Written by Surabhi Dangi-Garimella, PhD, the AJMC® coverage discussed 2 innovative clinical trials developed by “Beat Acute Myeloid Leukemia and the National Cancer Institute-Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice, which incorporate genomic profiling to assign patients to different treatment arms.”

A study in AJMC®s Health Information Technology (IT) special issue was covered by Health IT Analytics. The AJMC® research, “Building Health IT Capacity to Improve HIV Infection Health Outcomes,” explained how the Massachusetts Virtual Epidemiologic Network project integrates patient data from across the HIV care continuum.
