Planning for Success: Global Oncology Trials
March 18, 2016
Many pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies have adopted globalization as a business model for their clinical trials. This model is especially pertinent within oncology with the number of competing trials consistently rising while patient access across North America and Western Europe has plateaued.

This white paper explores several of the areas critical to the success of global oncology trials, including study planning, conducting feasibility and navigating regulatory submissions.
