The Registry of Oncology Outcomes Associated With Testing and Treatment

Study Purpose

This study is to collect and validate regulatory-grade real-world data (RWD) in oncology using the novel, Master Observational Trial construct. This data can be then used in real-world evidence (RWE) generation. It will also create reusable infrastructure to allow creation or affiliation with many additional RWD/RWE efforts both prospective and retrospective in nature.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

This is a master observational trial (MOT). Anyone who has been diagnosed with advanced cancer is eligible as long as they are a candidate for treatment. Each patient will receive testing and treatment as determined by patient in consultation with physician. ROOT will proceed in two directions:

  • (1) Validation Cohorts.
These patients will demonstrate the ability of the MOT to prospectively collect data using the same protocol and related documents, standardized data elements and processes, and accepted scientific endpoints; and
  • (2) Analysis Cohorts.
The modular nature of the study allows collection of RWD ranging from diagnosis only to the full treatment course of the of the patient. Patients are grouped to allow focused data collection or a specific analysis. Analysis cohorts can be created from patients already enrolled in ROOT or be defined prospectively. Because of the ongoing advancements of molecular based oncology, this trial allows a detailed focus on molecular testing as part of any cohort. Data is reported by the group that is most qualified to provide this information and is proved, at point of care, using standardized data elements and processes. Physicians will report diagnosis, molecular characteristics, staging, disease burden, significant comorbidities, treatment response, and medical decision making. Molecular testing (reports and details) will be requested from testing laboratories. Any diagnostic films will be received digitally from the location the study was performed. Research staff assist in data entry and providing physicians needed data as part of the regular workflow to allow point-of-care reporting. The Validation Cohorts and Analysis Cohorts may run sequentially or in parallel with each other.

Arms & Interventions


: Validation Cohort

Patients enrolled into the study to allow validation of a specific element, process, or endpoint. Validation will be done showing concordance with traditional interventional trial standards.

: Analysis Cohorts

Patient who are enrolled into the study to allow analysis to determine any association, effect, or benefit. Cohorts can be determined prospectively and/or retrospectively for data already collected, Cohorts are identified to highlight collection of information on patients who are already receiving any treatment or testing as determined by the physician and patient independent of this study. Because many analysis cohorts will be determined in patients already enrolled in the study, this group is inclusive of many different sub-groupings or specific analysis cohorts of patients.

: Retrospective Chart Review Cohorts

This arm will use retrospective data obtained through systematic chart review on previously seen patients to compare, contrast, or enhance the efforts of the prospective arms. Because most RWD has been traditionally obtained through retrospective methods, this is also considered the "control arm." Data in this arm will be collected without any patient identifiers. This arm is optional.


Diagnostic Test: - Biomarker Testing (L)

Patients who have received biomarker testing that could affect prognosis or treatment decisions. This generally excludes testing done to assist in the diagnosis of disease or histology where there is no treatment implication from this testing.

Drug: - Systemic Treatment (T)

Patients who have received any treatment as part of their care. This refers to systemic treatment, but also allows other non-drug related interventions such as surgery or radiotherapy as part of the longitudinal care of the patient.

Other: - Patient Reported Outcomes (P)

Patients who have provided information about their disease, treatment course, or experience directly to the study using a patient facing tool or device.
