Recruiting pediatric patients for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) studies is extremely challenging. Patients are difficult to identify and often face socio-economic or domestic challenges that can prevent clinical trial participation.

To mitigate these known study risks, PRA commissioned our Site Engagement team early in the study-planning phase to help sites develop customized recruitment initiatives to strictly maintain enrollment timelines.
