Rare Disease/Orphan Drug CRO & Clinical Research

We marry therapeutic acumen with operational sophistication – we understand the science, medicine, potential regulatory constraints, and the operational hindrances.

Worldwide Clinical Trials has participated in the design, execution, and/or analysis of >50 studies in orphan diseases. Therapies have included small-molecule enzyme inhibitors, immunotherapy (monoclonal antibodies), hormone therapy, and enzyme replacement therapy

Dependability and Sensitivity — Globally

A delicate and empathetic approach to parents and to very-ill patients, and superior project-management skills to master the logistics of geographic dispersion (eg, different cultures, varying standards of care, transportation infrastructure) is paramount.

Global reach is essential to assure access to patients which can often be elusive. Protocols must account for highly diverse clinical manifestations and disease progression, effectively introduce dose-ranging solutions and create design structures which are compatible with the demands placed upon families who must present patients to specialized centers for evaluations.

Clinical trials in rare disease disorders are necessarily small. Alternative trial designs and statistical techniques are needed. Worldwide Clinical Trials is familiar with advances in the science of small clinical trials and associated analytic methods. With our practical experience, and knowledge of methodologically rigorous options, we can propose study designs and data-analysis strategies suited to the challenges of the orphan disease.
