Clinical trials drive medical progress, but their success relies on effective patient recruitment. And recruiting patients for clinical trials is no small task. Consider these statistics: 37% of trial sites struggle with under-enrollment, 11% fail to enrol any patients, and 90% of trials need their timelines doubled to meet goals. Recruiting one patient costs an average of $6,533, with replacing a drop-out patient soaring to $19,533. Getting patient recruitment right is paramount.
In the ever-evolving world of healthcare and pharmaceuticals, researchers are constantly seeking ways to make drug development more efficient and effective. Sano’s new report, “Why are drug targets with genetic evidence twice as likely to succeed in trials?” sheds light on the use of genetic evidence to significantly increase the success rates of drugs in clinical trials, offering a glimpse into the future of personalised medicine.
Genetics plays a principal role in health and disease, and continues to become increasingly important for drug development. With genetic data, the focus is shifting from traditional trial-and-error approaches towards precision medicine. This data helps us to understand the genetic underpinnings of diseases, enabling the identification of potential drug targets and more personalised treatment strategies. In this blog, we explore the major sources of genetic data that drive advancements in drug discovery, ranging from genomic databases to cutting-edge sequencing technologies.
In the world of healthcare, genetics is ushering in a new era of personalised insights that are transforming how we approach healthcare. Our latest report, “The Genetic testing landscape: A look at the modern approach and the value of sponsored programs,” offers a valuable exploration of the evolving genetic testing landscape.
In the fast-paced world of medical research, patient advocacy groups have emerged as powerful drivers of change. One critical ingredient in their recipe for success is patient registries. These tools offer a direct relationship between patients and researchers, propelling medical advancements and accelerating the search for better treatments. Our newly released whitepaper, titled "Connecting communities: Engaging patients in registries for long-term impact," shares strategies and insights for patient advocacy groups that want to create impactful patient registries.
The rapidly evolving landscape of precision medicine has opened new avenues for personalised treatments, transforming how we approach patient care. Genetic information is now pivotal in tailoring medical interventions to individual needs. However, with this innovation comes a complex web of ethical and regulatory considerations that must be carefully navigated to ensure patient safety, data privacy, and ethical conduct. Here are the key insights and lessons from a recent Sano webinar in which Sarah Howard, our Head of Quality and Regulatory, shed light on the ethical and regulatory landscapes surrounding precision medicine.
