Key Facts About Clinical Trial Recruitment Challenges

Clinical trials are needed before a drug or treatment goes to market

Drug regulatory authorities like the FDA and the TGA require that virtually every new or modified drug or treatment is clinical trialed to determine:

  • Safety

  • Efficacy

  • Dosage

Why Patients join clinical trials:

Typically studies show approximately 70% of people would consider joining a clinical trial if they knew a trial was on. Nearly
two thirds of these people are motivated “to advance  medical science.”

Other most cited reasons for participation  include:

  • Help others with the condition (57%)

  • Obtain better treatment (48%)

  • Obtain faster access to treatment (34%)

  • A key driver is also renumeration for time and travel

Benefits for Clinics/Sites:

  • Expedite drug testing and availability of new drugs

  • Allows physicians to be on the cutting edge of medicine

  • Can be a lucrative opportunity

Effects of poor recruitment:

For pharma and biotech companies:

  • Potentially skewed statistical results

  • Loss of position and/or revenue for product

  • Decline of confidence in investigators

For Sites/Clinics:

  • Potential lost revenue for missing targets

  • Risk to future trial participation with sponsor

  • Loss in patient confidence

Traditional recruitment methods:

  • Investigator’s/Site’s own patients

  • Letters to selected hospitals/GP clinics

  • Brochures and posters in outpatient clinics

  • Post cards to referral networks

  • Notices to advocacy groups

  • Print advertorials

  • TV/ advertising

  • Newspaper advertising

  • Radio advertising
