Cancer clinical trials are search studies that test the pertinence of a new medical treatment on cancer patients. They are key factors for medical improvement and their success depends essentially on the number of enrollments onto trials.

Pre-screening patients manually require lengthy investigations and successive matching on patients’ records during a limited phase.

In fact, automating this process remains an information retrieval task[...]
