Clinical Trials Update #4 March 2011

Clinical trial recruitment to GI and hepatology trials across the UK has shown further promising increases. There has also been a significant increase in participating centres for multi-centre studies, and continuing progress in BRAG status (see bottom of article). Nationally the target of doubling recruitment to high quality trials has already been met, 18 months ahead of schedule. The only disappointments are the slow rate of expansion of the GI portfolio, and the relative paucity of commercial studies coming through.
