Patient Recruitment

Pharmaron’s recruitment team develops a customized recruitment plan for each individual study.  Our track record of success includes a 100% recruitment and 97% retention rate of healthy normal volunteers (HNVs).

Standard recruitment practices include data mining of our racially diverse, 15,000+ subject database, a study-specific advertising campaign and strict pre-screening of potential participants.  For harder-to-reach patient populations, our team designs complex direct-to-patient multi-media marketing campaigns and leverage multiple recruitment centers including academia, private practices and community hospitals.

We conduct a robust feasibility assessment prior to accepting any study from our sponsors to ensure each sponsor proposal has a solid execution plan in place. Once patients are chosen, we ensure they receive safe and comfortable care. The following is a list of patient profiles we have recruited for our studies:

  • Movement disorders: Parkinson’s, PSP, ALS
  • Cognitive impairment: mild, early-onset Alzheimer’s
  • SLE, Psoriasis
  • Adolescent, early-adult, adult asthma
