Opportunities and Challenges in China Will Be Topic of Theorem Clinical Research Presentation at Partnerships in Clinical Trials Conference

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Overcoming the challenges of conducting China’s largest outcomes trial and how it relates to doing business in this vital emerging market will be the topic of a joint presentation by Anja Moellman, Senior Project Director for Theorem Clinical Research, and Zoe Doran, Head of Clinical Research for the Diabetes Trials Unit at the University of Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism.

“What are the Real Opportunities and Challenges in China?” is scheduled as a November 8 session of the 11th annual Partnerships in Clinical Trials conference in Hamburg, Germany, November 6-9.

Moellman and Doran have been involved in a six-year Acarbose Cardiovascular Evaluation study in China and Hong Kong involving more than 7,500 patients and 165 investigative sites.

“Theorem stepped in after attempts by other CROs failed because of poor data quality and low patient recruitment as well as a variety of issues at individual investigative sites,” said Marc Hoffman, General Manager, Biopharmaceutical Development for Theorem. “Theorem’s aggressive plan for resolving problems and doubling the rate of patient randomization can serve as a valuable blueprint to anyone planning to do research in China.”

A true global Contract Research Organization (CRO), Theorem has been in Europe for more than 20 years and has been conducting clinical trials in China since 2003. The company has offices in Australia, Asia, the Middle East and throughout North and South America. Theorem will exhibit at the conference in booth #519.
