Neurology added as a Medicollect core competence

Medicollect’s competences on recruiting people with diabetes for clinical trials have been in great demand.

 Based on clients’ requests Medicollect has decided to add Neurology as a core recruitment service. In UK Medicollect already has a client, Canbex Therapeutics, who is dedicated to treating spasticity in multiple sclerosis. 

The company CEO, Rene Ludwigs agrees that it is a bold move:

“It’s clearly a very ambitious strategy to expand that quickly, but we have set the pace high because our clients are happy with our services. We are looking forward to working on other MS projects as well as projects focusing on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson. “

So far, companies such as Novartis, GSK, and the international CRO, Pharm-Olam, have shown interest in using Medicollect’s recruitment services within neurology as well.

CRO Medpace initiates cooperation with Medicollect

After being approved as a supplier to some of the world’s largest pharma companies, Medicollect is proud of also having completed vendor qualification in one of the largest CROs, Medpace.

Medpace has operations in over 50 countries and holds a strong position in diabetes trials. Therefore Medicollect and Medpace match exceptionally well.

Medpace has already asked Medicollect to provide participants for a study on the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers in both the UK and Denmark. We expect a lot from the cooperation with Medpace “says Rene Ludwig, CEO of Medicollect.

Patient recruitment company for diabetes trials, Medicollect, increases investments and enters UK market.

Copenhagen, Denmark – Medicollect today announced its expansion into UK, increasing its acceptance footprint across the continent. The addition of the British network extends the company’s reach to 3, 4 million diabetes patients.

According to a report produced for the drug company Novartis clinical trials in the United Kingdom cost significantly more than in other European countries, in large because of poor rates of recruitment (source).

“This means that there is an increasing need for innovative and reliable solutions that address market needs,” says Torben Lind, COO at Medicollect. “Our investment in UK will secure that test patients for clinical diabetes trials in United Kingdom will be provided at the same fast, safe and reliable way that Medicollect has serviced the Scandinavian market.

Through collaborating with diabetes stakeholders in UK and Denmark, Medicollect is directly contributing to bringing medical innovation to patients faster and support United Kingdom’s transformation to once more being a strong center for clinical trials.
