Subject recruitment and retention are crucial to conducting successful trials. NERI’s clinical research teams work with challenging patient populations every day, with a record of recruiting on target, retaining study subjects often over many years. We have conducted dozens of clinical studies and many thousands of patients involving rare conditions, vulnerable patients (e.g., infants), surgical procedures, and novel outcome assessments.
Because these populations are often at a disadvantage, our bar is set higher for ‘getting it right’.
Our expert teams understand that all steps -- from protocol development to clinical site training, clean data collection, analysis , reporting and tracking through closeout – must be conducted at the highest standards for collection of high quality data, to provide unequivocal answers to study hypotheses and reduce “noise” in the data.
Thoughtful science 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, avoiding cost overruns and ultimate success of the trial.
