Clinical Research Organizations: Promoting Quality
ACRO member companies and the CRO industry in general help ensure worldwide standards for clinical research trials are established and maintained. ACRO is also committed to advancing clinical trial outsourcing to improve the quality of biomedical research.
That translates to higher-quality clinical trials that spur the development of new drugs while protecting patients and research participants globally.
Worldwide, 76 percent of clinical trials are conducted in either the United States or Europe, with the remainder taking place in Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. According to the Drug Information Journal, there were no significant differences in data quality—regardless of where the trials took place.
That underscores the important role clinical research organizations like ACRO member companies play in protecting the quality of medical research trials worldwide.
