Accell Clinical Research on Benefits of Oncology Clinical Trials in Russia

SDC strategic partner Accell Clinical Research published an article in Pharmafocus, Collaborations in Oncology, on why Russia is a gateway to strong patient recruitment for oncology trials.

“The real benefit of working in Russia lies within the established and well-defined multi-tier oncology care network," said Julia Kondakov, Managing Member and Director, Business Development at Accell Clinical Research. Citing typical concerns of regulatory and customs challenges, drug shipment control, and language barriers, Kondakov asserts that with the right clinical partner "these perceived challenges could be overshadowed by the immense advantages offered by the fast patient recruitment and exceptional work quality."
