A new survey of clinical trial decision makers commissioned by Premier Research reports that nearly two-thirds (64%) of respondents said that among the most difficult factors in recruiting for a rare disease or orphan drug clinical trial was not only finding patients to join and remain in trials, but identifying and setting up investigative sites for studies.
Premier Research will present a speaker and host two roundtable sessions at the World Orphan Drug Congress, April 22-24 in Washington, DC. The Philadelphia-based contract research organization is a platinum sponsor of the fifth annual event, a top meeting place for biopharma, biotechs, government, patient groups, and others.
Premier Research and Alexion Pharmaceuticals will co-present a webinar on achieving uncommon success in rare and ultra-rare disease studies on Wednesday, March 11, at 11am EDT (NA) / 3pm GMT (UK) / 4pm CET (EU-Central).
7,000 rare diseases, many untreatable. 50% of patients are children. 35% of deaths in the first year of life are due to rare diseases. To everyone at Premier Research, that’s a call to action. So Premier Research employees worldwide will join together on Friday, February 27, to raise awareness of Rare Disease Day 2015.
