Clinical Trial Characteristics of CNS
Due to the special nature of CNS diseases and public recognition, protection of privacy can lead to difficulties in securing the informed consent and follow-up in this field.
Additionally, there is significant competition surrounding clinical development in this area with relatively few centers where clinical trials can be conducted. This means there is increased competition for enrollment which sometimes means longer waiting periods before trial initiation. And with low compliance and subject retention, follow-up is also challenging in CNS clinical development.
Besides this, most of the major evaluation indicators use scales and requirements related to the scale scoring are relatively high. So, to reduce the subjective scoring bias, it is necessary to ensure a well-established training program and process management.
