Minimizing Luck In Study Feasibility Part 1: Best Practices

Industry statistics reveal that up to 86% of clinical trials do not reach recruitment targets within their specified time periods. In order to turn that number around, sponsors should conduct feasibility studies starting with protocol development and study design. In doing so, they will be able to effectively identify countries, study sites, and investigators for conducting the research.

Minimizing Luck In Study Feasibility Part 2: Predictive Analytics

Sponsors conducting study feasibility must weigh variables ranging from epidemiology to enrollment benchmarks. This lends itself to a machine-learning approach vs. manual analyses. Even greater time and cost savings can be realized when study feasibility is applied to trials in niche patient populations, where limited availability of data precludes conventional approaches.
