Clinical Trial Excellence: Shaping Markets Through Early,Communication of Clinical Trial Data

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 25, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- With enormous investments and the success of a pharmaceutical product at play, pharmaceutical firms need to develop effective strategies for communicating clinical trial results early. Companies that master their communication planning and execution will gain a significant advantage in the marketplace.

According to research and consulting firm Best Practices, LLC, successful companies create communication plans long before the interim or final results for a landmark trial are available.

"From Breakthrough to Blockbuster: Best Practices in Communicating Clinical Trial Results" - available with a complimentary study excerpt at - examines the most effective practices for communicating clinical trial results to physicians, the managed care community, investors and consumers.
