As clinical trials become more complex and the use of biologics becomes more widespread, protocols increasingly require recruitment of special and patient populations. Altasciences has the advanced level of clinical expertise required to successfully recruit and conduct clinical trials involving special and patient populations.
The key to the recruitment of special and patient populations is effective screening. Clinical pharmacology units must be able to quickly identify viable study participants based on protocol inclusion/exclusion criteria. In addition, recruiting populations for clinical research trials requires a strategic approach that combines market research, knowledge of the local media, target population information, cultural concerns, geographic considerations, as well as a thorough understanding of the clinical trial process.
Altasciences has been conducting clinical trials in special and patient populations, as well as in healthy normal patients, for over 25 years. Our dedicated recruitment team is highly trained to carefully pre-screen participants before scheduling them for an office screening appointment, where they meet with one of our full-time healthcare professionals; thus reducing study start-up timelines.
