Drug Companies Pin Hopes On TrialReach To Enroll Patients In Clinical Trials Faster
Two years ago, Pfizer, Novartis, and Eli Lilly set aside competition to form a consortium called Patients to Trials. Goal: To solve an issue that has bedeviled their industry and slowed drug development—namely how to enroll patients in clinical trials faster. According to CenterWatch, 75% of the public is unaware of clinical studies, and nearly half of trials don’t fulfill their recruitment goals, causing delays. “If we can compress the time it takes to enroll a trial, we can get medicines to patients much faster,” says Jeff Kasher, formerly vice president of Clinical Innovation and Implementation at Eli Lilly, and president of Patients Can’t Wait.
