;   Medical Translation Insight: Site saturation (or lack thereof) is a big driver for global clinical research - ForeignExchange Translations

Global clinical research - site saturation (or lack thereof) is a big driverWe have already mentioned Kendle's article Latin American Clinical Trial Authorizations (PDF link) back in June but it just keeps on giving.

Another interesting piece of data in the article is based on FDA Form 1572 data. It shows how clinical trial sites are heavily concentrated in the western world:

RegionNumber of trial sites/1,000,000 inhabitants
Western Europe11
Central/Eastern Europe8
Latin America2

It is no surprise then that clinical research is going global and expanding outside the traditional areas. With significantly fewer sites competing for patient populations, CROs and sponsors find that recruitment is easier, allowing emerging market sites to produce more patients per site per month than sites in traditional regions.
