Contract Research Organization WCCT Global Announces Continued Success in Japanese Bridging Clinical Trials

Japanese bridging clinical trial success has been achieved by WCCT Global Full Service CRO

COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- WCCT Global, a full service CRO headquartered in Southern California announced today the overwhelming success of recruiting and completing a difficult Japanese bridging clinical trial. WCCT Global has been recognized as an industry leader when it comes to ethno bridging studies, specifically focused on Japanese population groups. Their process for recruiting and retaining the Japanese volunteers has set the industry standard for U.S. based Japanese bridging clinical research. The most recent study required WCCT Global to screen 115 first generation Japanese volunteers which was done successfully. The goal for this study was to enroll 68 first generation Japanese into the study but WCCT Global was able to surpass that amount and enroll 83 volunteers. This over-enrollment is attributed to WCCT Global's targeted recruitment methods and outreach to the Japanese community in Southern California to spark interest about clinical trial participation. WCCT Global has a Japanese call line so when potential volunteers call their facility, they are able to speak to their in-house fluent Japanese recruitment specialist who creates a seamless process to give all study information and conduct prescreening in the Japanese language.
