The RTOG Case Credit & Reimbursement List details the amount of case credit and payment awarded for patients accrued to group studies. Funding and credits are labeled as being awarded by either CTEP or DCP. Studies that receive additional support from corporate sources are also listed.
· CTEP Credit/funding is awarded by the NCI Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program for treatment-related endpoints.
· DCP Credit/funding is awarded by the NCI Division of Cancer Prevention for symptom management and quality of life endpoints.
· Both CTEP and DCP credits are used to calculate member accrual.
The schedule for reimbursement for the submission of biospecimen materials is standard across protocols and is included in this list. Studies with staged payments have individual schedules that are available on the individual protocol summary page.
