Are there procedures specific to the conduct of a neurology trial that sponsors/principal investigators should be aware of?

Q&A with Rebecca Hinton, Clinical Project & Safety Manager at genae Americas

Q: Are there procedures specific to the conduct of a neurology trial that sponsors/principal investigators should be aware of?

A: Neurology research studies on devices such as nerve coverings, vascular access technologies for stroke treatment, and filtering devices often require the completion of several neurological assessments to assess patient progress and outcomes.

It is important for a Principal Investigator to be aware of this up front so that adequate time and staff can be devoted to the study. These types of assessments also require additional training of study staff which can raise a site’s start-up costs to cover the additional time.
