Rare Diseases Survey Report

Survey results: Identifying clients’ needs and challenges in rare disease clinical development

Rare disease clinical research is particularly complex due to a variety of factors that influence trial design and operationalization.

The results of the survey identify clients’ needs and the challenges they are facing in conducting rare disease clinical trials.
