Recruitment Considerations for Early Phase Clinical Trials in Diabetes

  • Patient participation in early phase clinical trials in diabetes can reduce risks and accelerate “go, no-go” decisions
  • Early phase clinical trials that recruit patients with diabetes require appropriate inclusion/exclusion criteria that consider comorbidities and concomitant medications thereby protecting the safety of participants while providing useful information
  • Older patients, those in the pediatric and adolescent age groups, and women of childbearing potential require specific risk management strategies
