PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 15, 2011 - The ˜2nd Annual State of Clinical Development Cost Conference' hosted by USciences and sponsored by TTC will highlight a variety of detailed research throughout this two day event. Are you curious how much CROs are actually used? Or how much CROs are involved in key clinical trial activity areas? Curious how the use of CRO's affect study completion times? These questions will be explored and answered during the conference.

The study is based upon over 2,000 phase 3 studies. These individual clinical study level data enhance and refine information reported on survey based data. The conference will highlight this research.

In addition to how much CROs are used and how they are involved in key clinical trial activities, there will be other research topics addressed as well. These issues include an analysis on total site spending in key geographies, why Latin American and Asia/Pacific investigators take part in clinical trials, the extent to which sites currently include Standard of Care considerations in the clinical trial budgeting, and which site start-up costs are part of clinical trial agreements.
