ARG’s history of successfully operationalizing rare disease clinical research has been driven by comprehensive engagement with our sponsors.
The development of a product to treat a rare disease is an intricate undertaking. Our potential sponsors often find themselves in uncharted territory with few (if any) previous studies conducted in their intended indication. Projects with small patient populations present unique challenges.
As a result, there is limited knowledge and data about the disease itself. It is in this challenging context that sponsors search for a CRO with the knowledge, resources, and energy necessary to manage these difficult projects. Enter ARG.
Rare disease research requires a collaborative and attentive mindset for all participating stakeholders, especially the CRO. There are many ways in which ARG’s complete engagement with partners manifests itself in studies.
We are a strategic partner rather than just an implementer. Locked in on every study, we see every angle and offer real solutions. We also take the time to think and engage in open and meaningful discussions. Ultimately, we recognize that the sponsor is the key driver of the trial so our intention is to walk with them to answer the questions they outline.
Because rare disease projects are often a journey of discovery about the disease, they require innovative thinking and savvy adjustments as the knowledge base grows. Supplemental support for inexperienced investigators and fragile or remote patients also may be needed. With no standard trial design or formula for rare disease research, continual engagement is necessary.
Success is determined by a group of partner experts collaborating to ask the right questions, anticipate unique challenges, and generate appropriate solutions both before and during a clinical trial.
ARG recognizes and values the importance of complete engagement. We work decisively to foster participation and interaction at all levels of the study team.
