HAMBURG, Germany, November 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Partnerships in Clinical Trials is produced by Informa; 17-19 November, 2015; Hamburg Germany; http://www.informa-ls.com/event/PCT2015
Informa-the leading provider of intelligence on pharmaceutical industry R&D-has early-released an analyst review of "The Effect of Geographic Breadth on Enrollment in Clinical Trials of High Interest Diseases", exclusively to attendees at the Partnerships in Clinical Trials Europe ("PCT") conference in Hamburg, Germany. The report captures and analyzes geographic enrollment trends in top indications including Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimer's Disease, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Partnerships in Clinical Trials Europe attendees, who are receiving the enrollment trends analysis in advance of its November 23 full release, are now the first in the industry to have access to actionable intelligence about potential patient recruitment efficiency based on the number of countries included in a clinical trial.
Projecting timelines and identifying sites are key elements to consider while planning clinical trials. Location matters for targeting the right markets and patient populations, but does the total number of countries included affect enrollment? According to Citeline/Informa analyst Doro Shin, who authored the report, spreading the geography of a trial does appear to aid enrollment overall, but effects are disease dependent.
"There is no one size fits all for the optimal number of countries used in a trial," said Ms Shin. "Because of the disparity, it is important for pharma companies and CROs to understand the landscape of clinical trials in their competitive spaces, which will help them to plan and budget appropriately."
Ms. Shin's analysis was based on data from Trialtrove®, Trialpredict® and BioMedTracker®, industry gold standard pharma competitive intelligence tools which provide an unrivaled level of reliable, relevant data to the global pharmaceutical industry.
According to PCT Conference Director Rosie Bernard, the report provides an additional intelligence edge for Partnerships in Clinical Trials attendees.
"This reports highlights the importance of focusing on both target and actual accruals to achieve goal enrolment," said Bernard.
"The Effect of Geographic Breadth on Enrollment in Clinical Trials of High Interest Diseases" will be available to the public on November 23, 2015 at https://www.citeline.com/category/whitepapers/
