Verified Clinical Trials Featured In The CNS Summit Innovative Showcase To Stop Dual Enrollment And Professional Research Subjects From Altering Clinical Trial Data

Share Article

Verified Clinical Trials (VCT) has been selected to present at the CNS Summit 2012 detailing the issues surrounding dual enrollment in clinical trials and the specific effects this has on CNS clinical trials. These effects range from causing faulty data and potential serious safety risks in these trials if professional research subjects are able to join more than one clinical trial at a time. All therapeutic areas are prone to this behavior by the professional research subject, but there appears to be an increased predilection in CNS clinical trials.

A scalable completely web based solution such as Verified Clinical Trials is required in order to include all phases and all indications of clinical trials

Dual enrollment in clinical trials by professional research subjects has become a substantial issue. Verified Clinical Trials was selected to detail the issues surrounding dual enrollment in clinical trials and the professional research subject effects of such practice. Particular attention was directed at the special needs and abuses that occur with CNS trials. While at the conference, Verified Clinical Trials summarized a solution to this issue that plagues the industry. Verified Clinical Trials has established itself as the leader in the field of clinical trials database registries partnering with the world largest and most formidable pharmaceutical and research companies.

During the Innovation Showcase, Kerri Weingard ANP COO, communicated the need for a cooperative clinical trials database registry within the industry. Ms. Weingard outlined the challenges faced in CNS clinical trials when subjects attempt to enroll in more than one trial simultaneously and the potential effects on the volunteers safety. Ms. Weingard stated, "A scalable completely web based solution such as Verified Clinical Trials is required in order to include all phases and all indications of clinical trials. VCT continues to be deployed across unlimited research sites and users to improve coverage."

Mitchell Efros MD CEO stated "Verified Clinical Trials not only provides protection for dual enrollment in clinical trials but is also able to exclude screening and participation if the subject has been in a study previously with the same compound in those cases where this is exclusionary. This enables the sponsor and site to be confident that there is no violation of the protocol in these cases. The ability to send out automatic visit reminders via text and email and the built in recruitment system makes VCT a clear choice". Dr Efros further added, "By stopping poor quality subjects prior to screening we are saving the sponsor and the industry significant amounts of money".

Verified Clinical Trials utilizes a proprietary UIC or unique Identification Code to anonymously protect the volunteers identity and personal information. At no point can another site or sponsor see any personal health information, nor can they learn about any prior specific study history. The system is accurate and instant.
