Pediatric studies are often difficult to enroll. And once the first-patient-in date has passed and the enrollment clock starts ticking, your difficult-to-enroll study can quickly become in peril of missing its planned last-patient-in date. BBK Worldwide has extensive experience bolstering enrollment efforts even after first-patient-in. Today, we're sharing a few pediatric case studies that achieved enrollment despite a slow start.
