Clinical Operations for Rare Neuromuscular Disease Trials

In any clinical trial, a skilled and efficient clinical operations team is crucial to trial success. The clinical operations team needs to manage the trial, select and start up the clinical trial sites, manage ethical committee reviews, and hit trial milestones on time and on budget. In a rare neuromuscular disease trial, the tasks and milestones are similar, but the work is more complex.

Rare neuromuscular diagnoses and their standard clinical care practices add complexity to a trial. Eligible rare disease participants are harder to find and are essential to retain. Standard clinical care for a rare disease can be less well-defined than more common diseases. Complex diseases bring more concomitant medications, more medical history, and more subspecialists to a study.  Clinical trial sites work harder to enroll fewer participants who complete more study procedures at each visit.

TRiNDS Clinical Operations offers specialized services for rare neuromuscular disease research. We offer expert project management to leverage our past experiences with the expert sites you’ll need. Our in – house clinical research associates receive specialized training, so they arrive on site for monitoring visits understanding the clinical context of the protocol. Our model is to provide excellent service to our trial sites to support their rapid startup and high-quality data collection throughout the life of the trial.

TRiNDS is a contract research organization (CRO) dedicated to conducting rare and neuromuscular disease research. We are currently accepting new clients developing products for rare disease, orphan disease, and neuromuscular patient populations. Contact TRiNDS today to request a quote.
