Efficient, accurate, and personalized patient recruitment and retention is crucial to conducting successful trials. You need a team you can count on who understands the high bar required to meet these goals, while keeping patients’ needs central. Our work with challenging patient populations and our track record of recruiting and retaining study participants on target, often over many years, meets that bar. In fact, we have conducted clinical studies with many thousands of patients involving rare conditions, vulnerable patients (e.g., infants), surgical procedures, and novel outcome assessments. Because of this experience, our bar is set even higher for ‘getting it right’.
Our expert teams understand that all steps — from protocol development to clinical site training, data collection and cleaning, analysis, reporting, and tracking must be conducted at the highest standards. This ensures the collection of high quality data, to provide unequivocal answers to study hypotheses and reduce “noise” in the data.
Strong partnerships and scientific expertise leads to appropriate selection of sites, whether domestic or in countries outside the US. This can make the difference in meeting enrollment goals, regulatory acceptance, and keeping within established costs ultimately leading to success of the trial to deliver meaningful outcomes.
Most prescription drugs and other treatments have never been clinically studied in children. Collaborating across many federal agencies, our research teams have been committed to improving this evidence base.
Pediatric research requires deep knowledge of patient differences, regulatory requirements, and safety concerns.
Since its founding, our clinical research team has been deeply involved in the long-standing effort to improve these figures by conducting, or collaborating on, research in children and infants.Read the Article
