BRAIN

Neurological disorders consist of more than 600 conditions, impacting an estimated 75 million people worldwide every year. Many are rare disorders that affect a small number of patients who currently have access to few, if any, effective treatments. Patient recruitment is, therefore, a huge challenge. Research in the Brain area is becoming a vibrant space with increased research spending in diseases such as Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s. While there are many specialists in this area, the scientific understanding of the neurological basis of Brain disorders is not as advanced as some of the other physiological systems.

THE CHALLENGES

  • Trials are lengthy and expensive
  • Competitive trials for patient populations
  • Global regional regulatory differences and requirements
  • Endpoint subjectivity / Placebo noise

OUR SOLUTION

  • Flexible contract and payment options
  • Expanded geographical footprint (including Latin America and global peer-to-peer networks)
  • Deep in-house understanding of EU, Asia and Latin American regulatory processes and requirements
  • Endpoint site-to-site standardisation and efficient trial design by Six Sigma Black Belt team
