Here is what our CRO, Pharmaceutical and Biotech partners have to say

“Optimal Clinical Trials provided us with world class recruitment: 123% recruitment target in one third of the time allocated to the study.” Australasian CRO.

“I cant speak highly enough of the work that Dr Barney and his team have performed for us. Optimal was fast to set up the study and hit the ground running! They quickly identified suitable participants for a complex involved study and enrolled 160% of their contracted recruitment target, in a much shorter time than the other research sites. Optimal has been crucial to the success of our phase II study.” Australasian Sponsor.

“The team at Optimal Clinical Trials was instrumental in achieving our recruitment targets. Optimal came on as a rescue site, and worked hard to enrol the most patients in New Zealand. They are a friendly, enthusiastic and committed team who respond quickly and go the extra mile to ensure outstanding patient recruitment and quality data. We look forward to working with Optimal on the next study and unreservedly recommend them to CROs and sponsors who want a top performing reliable research site.” Australasian CRO
