TrialReach, CenterWatch partner to offer patients clinical trial resources
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
All TrialReach users will now be able to access CenterWatch’s online professional, educational and informative services and resources from news and analysis on the industry to trial listings seeking study volunteers from the Clinical Trials Listing Service (CTLS™). Additionally, CenterWatch’s patient visitors will have access to TrialReach’s database of more than 270,000 clinical trials.
“We share a mission with CenterWatch to make sure all patients get the clinical trial information and access they deserve,” said Pablo Graiver, CEO
of TrialReach. “It’s a tragedy that most patients don’t know that clinical trials are an option. Our content sharing agreement with CenterWatch means that together we will offer patients more options, digestible information and better access to clinical trials.”
TrialReach is helping to solve one of the most substantial problems in clinical trials, making it easier for patients and researchers to connect with each other to develop new treatments and find cures. Today, one in five cancer trials fail to find a single participant and only 3% of adult patients participate in cancer research, simply because the majority of adult patients do not know clinical trials are an available treatment option.
“TrialReach and CenterWatch are both passionate about helping patients find and understand all their clinical trial options,” said Joan Chambers, COO of CenterWatch. “Our patient-centric approach and our combined distribution network of health web sites such as Healthline.com and WebMD means that more than 100 million patients will have access to vital information.”
