In today’s tightly competitive market, companies are constantly striving for ways to further cut costs and reduce study startup cycle times, while maintaining quality. One of the key cost factors in global R&D spending, estimated at around $102 billion per Kalorama market research, is the cost of conducting clinical trials. CRO’s, which account for about 30% of the total R&D spending, have risen to the challenge of the clinical, technical and administrative management of these trials.
