LAVAL, Québec–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Altasciences?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#Altascienceslt;/agt;–Altasciences won in the Most Successful Early Phase Research
(Preclinical & Phase I) category at the 2019 Clinical and Research
Excellence (CARE) Awards. The award win was announced during a ceremony
presented by Ben Nemzer at the Hyatt Regency Boston, US on May 2, 2019.
Now in its fourth year, the CARE Awards drew a crowd of pharmaceutical
and biomedtech industry leaders and innovators from companies both large
and small, who gathered to celebrate the achievements of those working
to advance the quality of healthcare worldwide by bringing new and
needed medicines to market. Categories for the awards spanned the full
spectrum of the drug development process, and the winners of these
prestigious trophies were as diverse as the categories themselves.
Altasciences undertook an innovative approach to identify and recruit
asymptomatic patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH, a
disease for which recruitment competition is quite high. This project
required creative and insightful thinking, analysis and preparation to
proactively build a patient database for a condition that is
asymptomatic, for which affected patients lack awareness and hence
motivation to participate in a clinical trial. The upfront investment of
effort paid off. Despite joining the trial 2 months behind other sites,
Altasciences became the top enrolling site, recruiting more than 35% of
the overall patients.
“I am proud of our team’s unwavering commitment and passion to
bringing better and more cost effective drugs to the people who need
them, faster. This recognition by the industry of our ability to provide
innovative solutions and of our effective participant recruitment and
retention strategies reflects Altasciences’ ongoing drive to meet and
exceed sponsor expectations,” stated Chris Perkin, CEO, at
