Recruitment of subjects is a critical aspect of prevention trials that is often overlooked by investigators. As a consequence, accrual time is often extended, workloads may become heavy, and resource utilization is increased in an effort to complete projects. Recruitment of healthy subjects in cancer prevention and control studies presents unique issues that need to be considered. The barriers to recruitment include participant issues, physician variables, features of the study design, and characteristics of the health care system in the United States. The authors provide their experience in overcoming these difficulties. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
