Citeline Connect Clinical Trial Recruitment Platform Announces Expansion of Reach into all Global Markets

Platform’s recruitment capabilities have grown to support over 30 countries globally

US and Global Clinical Trials

Trialtrove data show that 69% of clinical trials are conducted outside the US.

NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Citeline Connect, the all-in-one clinical trial recruitment platform developed by Informa Pharma Intelligence, is expanding its technology and referral network to include EU and global markets.

The expansion comes on the heels of Citeline Connect’s success in recruiting for Moderna’s Phase III COVID-19 vaccine trial, particularly for diverse participants. Diane Montross, Senior Director of Patient Recruitment & Retention at Moderna, spoke on the speed and success of the COVE Study recruitment efforts in a presentation at the recent DPharm conference.

In addition, as the following statistics from Trialtrove indicate, over half of all registered clinical trials involving a drug intervention are conducted outside the US:

“Based on our overwhelming success recruiting for US-based trial sites, combined with the increased need for trial participants at sites outside the US, we saw an opportunity for Citeline Connect to help more study sponsors meet enrollment goals,” said Chris Venezia, Chief Commercial Officer at Citeline Connect. “Our robust prescreening process minimizes screen fails, enabling sponsors to recruit faster and more efficiently than ever before.”

Citeline Connect has already begun recruiting trial participants globally, and with new consent and platform enhancements the recruitment capabilities have grown to support over 30 countries globally, including the UK, Canada, Austria, Italy, France, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Poland, Hungary, New Zealand, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Bulgaria, Israel, Turkey, Taiwan, Australia, Japan, Brazil, Korea, Switzerland, Singapore, Argentina, Georgia, Colombia, Malaysia, India and Russia.
