Lecture: The global clinical trial crisis

The CRO market is expected to reach more than $45 billion by 2022. The CRO industry is growing at a rapid rate, affecting the pharma industry, biotech companies and academic arenas.

Clinical trials are being conducted on virtually every clinical condition, but some conditions are receiving overwhelmingly more attention. For example, there are less than 9,000 medical device clinical trials currently recruiting, according to ClinicalTrials.Gov. Compare that to oncology, which currently has more than 15,000 recruiting studies.

This lecture will delve into the general industry perspective on clinical trials, with a focus on medical device trials, as well as the key approaches that companies must have in order to succeed in their clinical trials and the importance of labeling.
