Recruitment network for early patient trials

The healthcare system in Eastern Europe is highly centralized and well documented. At our clinical pharmacology units we recruit the patients via the following channels:

  • Patients in the database of the hospitals where our units are located in
  • The new patients, which come on daily basis as seen by the investigators in our teams
  • The patients referred to us by a trusted network of collaborating physicians (from other hospital clinics in a radius of up to 150 km from our units) 

Each of our units has a dedicated team of recruitment managers, who oversee a large network of collaborating physicians. Efficient networking and an in-depth understanding of the healthcare systems in each of the countries we work in enables us a rapid recruitment.

The success of our recruitment is guaranteed by a very close collaboration and personal connections to such well selected and tested network of collaborating physicians.

For each trial we established a tailor made recruitment strategy which depends on the particularities and design of the trial. This ensures that every study is performed within the timelines as initially estimated and agreed with the Sponsor. The reputation of our group is based on the reliability – we give our sponsors realistic planning which we fulfill.

This network is consistently and continuously being built up in following therapeutic areas where we deliver exceptional fast recruitment rates incl. the treatment naïve patients:

  • Oncology/Hematology
  • Cardiovascular/Metabolics
  • Pulmonary Disorders
  • Gastro-Intestinal Disorders
  • Endocrinology
  • Nephrology
  • Hepatology
  • Immunology/Rheumatology
  • Dermatology
  • Gynaecology
  • Urology
  • Acute and Chronic Infections incl. HIV and Hepatitis
  • Pediatrics
  • Ophtamology
  • Neurology
  • Psychiatry

Healthy volunteers (as control groups to Phase 1 studies in renal/hepatic impaired patients) are recruited by word of mouth.

Based on specific in/exclusion criteria, we are glad to offer our Sponsors concrete and reliable estimations on recruitment rates within a study feasibility process.
