Description

GBI Research, the leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research, “Clinical Trial Recruitment in Cardiovascular Diseases - Average Patient Recruitment per Trial was the Highest in Venous Thromboembolism”. The report provides a robust idea about patient recruitment status by geography, sponsor companies and year for all the major CVD indications. Furthermore, the report provides prevalence forecast data to 2017 for all the major CVD indications. The major indications covered in the report are hypertension, atrial fibrillation, dyslipidemia and venous thromboembolism. The report was built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.

There has been an increase in the number of clinical trials conducted for cardiovascular diseases (CVD) due to the high prevalence of CVD. According to the American Heart Association’s (AHA) 2006 data, around 81.1 million people in the US suffer from CVD and one in every 2.9 deaths in the US is due to CVD. According to the European Heart Network’s 2008 data, CVD caused 4.3 million deaths (48%) in Europe. The high prevalence and mortality rate associated with CVD has led to an increase in research and development (R&D) activity by pharmaceutical companies.

Clinical trials are one of the most critical parts of the drug development process. The various aspects involved in clinical trials, such as the implementation of technology, efficient supply chain management, proper site selection, patient recruitment and database management among others, are crucially important. Clinical trial recruitment is a time intensive process so good strategies must be followed by pharmaceutical companies for proper patient recruitment.

Efficient patient recruitment leads to a decrease in the time and cost associated with patient recruitment. At present, the rate of new drug approvals is declining as pharmaceutical companies are under intense pressure to reduce the time required for drug development. It is equally important to cut the costs of clinical trials through proper patient recruitment. The delay in recruitment time is responsible for the increase in the timeline of clinical trial completion, the increase in costs to conduct the clinical trial and a delay in the time to market. There are many barriers to participation for the patients and for investigators who enroll the patients into the trials.

To complete the trial recruitment targets set by the sponsors or clinical research organizations (CROs), proper strategies must be planned in the initial phases of the trial. This will help to save time as well as costs in reaching the optimum patient pool for statistical analysis. If the recruitment is faster in the early stages of the trial, high and low potential sites can be identified. High-recruiting sites can then be allowed by the sponsors to exceed their targets in order to compensate for low recruiting sites.
