ACRO Comments on NEJM Article on Globalization of Clinical Research
Date:2/20/2009

tes and Western Europe. According to the non-profit Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation, 80% of clinical trials in the United States are delayed at least one month because of unfulfilled enrolment. The ramifications of this limited participation are clear. According to the National Cancer Institute, fewer than 5% of cancer patients participate in clinical trials; but if the participation rate doubled to just 10%, studies could be completed in one year, rather than the typical three-to-five years. ACRO and its members work extensively to increase clinical trial participation in the U.S. and Western Europe, yet multinational studies are not only necessary but also desirable in order to meet the demands of today's global pharmaceutical industry.

The article cites "the increasingly bureaucratic and expensive regulatory environment in many wealthy countries" as another force that is moving clinical trials to developing countries. Again, ACRO looks forward to working with sponsors, academic researchers and other participants in the drug development process to improve the environment for clinical research while maintaining an emphasis on participant safety. Among other collaborations, ACRO is an active participant in the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI), a joint project of the Food & Drug Administration and Duke University.
