Why We Do What We Do

MRN aims to create services to provide a platform for mainstream implementation of community-based clinical trials, which are designed to speed up clinical trials and make them efficient, bringing drugs to the market quicker for our customers and patients who volunteer to take part in the trials we support.

In community based trials patients can live considerable distances from their PI and have routine trial tasks carried out by local health teams on their doorstep, whether they are patients of the PI or not. The patient could be a hundred miles from their PI and, in most cases, may be 30 minutes travel away from a major hospital where they can get radiology and other complex tests carried out. Patients will be within a few minutes travel of physicians who can undertake basic safety assessments and all they need to do is open the door to nurses who can see the patient and conduct a number of procedures in their home.

Our experience demonstrates that when clinical trials are conducted using the traditional method, involving a high number of visits to the clinical site, a large burden is placed on the patient, often resulting in low recruitment. The complete virtual model, where there is little or no human-contact experiences similar recruitment challenges, especially in populations that do not have access to technology. Our Community Based Trial Model aims to optimize the amount of patient contact and use technology to ensure high-quality, real-time data and efficiency.
