Accelerating clinical trials with faster site selection and patient recruitment

Challenges

Sponsors in Europe and North America are facing increased challenges around participant recruitment and retention, lengthy timeframes and relatively high costs.

Asia-Pacific has become a key location for clinical trials, driven by its large patient population, scale of medical facilities, government support for clinical trials, strategic importance of Asian economies as end consumer markets, lower trial costs, and high-quality standards.

Novotech and PPC Group formed a strategic partnership in 2019 creating the largest biotech CRO specialist in the Asia-Pacific region. The partnership brings together approximately 1,200 staff to meet the growing biotech demand in the region.

 

A multi-award winning regional contract research organization (CRO)

Novotech has been instrumental in the success of over a thousand Phase I - IV clinical trials for biotechnology companies.
