Title

Potential Differences in Subjects From Physician Recruitment Versus Centralized Recruitment Campaigns in a Clinical Trial

Abstract Summary

Blinded data from a Phase 3 Irritable Bowel Syndrome study was retrospectively evaluated using a quasi-experimental design. The information for analysis was accessed from clinical trial enrollment reports, progress reports, and SAS datasets. Individual subject data was captured via the IBS-QOL surveys, electronic case report forms, and electronic diaries. Descriptive statistics was used to evaluate demographic data. Either a specified t test or Fisher’s Exact Test was utilized for the comparison of five key characteristics (likelihood for enrollment, compliance to treatment, completion of the clinical trial, physiological symptoms, and psychological assessments) of the study population based upon the recruitment methods – physician or centralized campaign.
