When planning a rare disease clinical trial, drug developers can expect to face several challenges. In many cases, developers approach the study believing that patient recruitment will be their biggest obstacle. They are correct in making this assumption, but it is not always for the reasons they assumed.
Finding patients is, in fact, the most common obstacle experienced in rare disease clinical trials. Nevertheless, it is not always due to lack of patient presence, rather it is the culmination of several key challenges. This includes but is not limited to understanding the diagnostic odyssey, competitive study and treatment landscape, ability to operationalize at the global, regional and site level. This is where a robust, data-driven feasibility analysis becomes a necessary, key component.
