    Rare Disease

    Rare Disease clinical research studies pose a different challenge in terms of project management, site selection, and patient enrollment and retention. Rare diseases affect fewer than 200,000 patients at any given time and demand a full-service CRO with innovative strategies to manage a rare disease program. In particular, Rare Disease clinical research studies necessitate expertise in enrolling rare disease patients and maximising site selection to create realistic study feasibility. Designing protocols and executing study design for scarce patient populations, including pediatric patients who comprise 50% of these populations, requires medical doctors and pediatricians with specialised expertise. In addition, study design inclusive of a late phase component with access to Rare Disease patient registries is a critical tool.
