Enrolling a global study ahead of schedule (during a pandemic)

Enrolling a global clinical trial is hard. Completing enrollment early is harder. Amgen accomplished both during a global pandemic.

Like many sponsors, Amgen was faced with the challenge of enrolling a global study in the middle of a COVID-19 pandemic that had decreased patient enrollment in trials across the world. Through proactive planning and rapid decision-making, Amgen was on track to meet their original protocol-defined enrollment target ahead of their planned Last Subject Enrolled date.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how Amgen’s trial teams deployed a strategy centered on site-focused collaboration and technology-enabled insights to respond rapidly to enrollment trends and enroll patients more quickly than originally projected.
