Event abstract:
The increasing complexity of clinical trials and the underlying science suggests that more time, highly trained personnel, and sophisticated equipment may be required to conduct a typical study. The increasing expense around a study is bringing the cost per clinical trial up. The Bureau of Labor statistics shows that the average annual growth rate for Phase I clinical trials was close to 9% in the period 2000-2011. With 17% of registered clinical trials being early phase studies, the BioTalks asked experts from the sponsor and CRO worlds to share their knowledge on how to best set up and manage early stage clinical trials.
