Only 500 of 7,000 known diseases currently have a treatment. And not only does it take an average of 10 years for a new drug to go through clinical trials, only 5% of studied drugs make it to drugstore shelves. The result: millions of people left waiting longer for a better treatment for their illnesses. The world of clinical trials needs a shake-up. TrialSpark believes that addressing what's not working about the clinical trial process is essential to pushing medicine forward and changing the lives of people living with chronic illness.
Bringing clinical trials into communities allows us to get promising treatments into the hands of a more diverse population of patients and, if we are successful in the long run, will increase the diversity and affordability of treatments that are available to everyone.
- Michelle Lew, the director of product design at TrialSpark
