A Cure for Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are a vital step in bringing new drugs to market. But while pharmaceuticals companies pay close attention to the scientific side of designing their clinical trials, few consider how they will get enough patients to participate. As a result, most trials are plagued by delays that can cost pharma companies millions of dollars in missed sales.

The take-away: To recruit enough patients, pharma companies must approach clinical trials as a marketing exercise. Bringing marketers into the process early will not only prevent costly delays but also enhance the trials' efficiency.
