The typical relationship between clinical trial sponsors and CROs is rarely described as ‘simple.’ And few, if any, are based on the trust and collaboration that would improve efficiencies in clinical research. With over 70% of clinical trials being outsourced to CROs, and less than 10% meeting trial completion dates, the question becomes not when, but how can this critical relationship be improved to make clinical development more efficient?
The practice of using CROs to conduct clinical trials continues to grow, with clinical research leading the way.
