Clinical Trial Support Organisation

Medical Research Network

The Medical Research Network (MRN) is the world’s leading provider of home healthcare for patients in clinical trials, specifically aimed at boosting patient recruitment and maximising patient retention.

Established in 2006, the MRN is the longest standing and most experienced organization offering international services in this sector. Running clinical trial visits in the home is a highly specialised niche business requiring on high quality nursing, clinical research expertise and supply chain capability. The organization’s vision is to run clinical research in the community, reducing the workload for the patient and maximising the investment for the pharmaceutical research Sponsor. Headquartered in the UK, the MRN now also has offices in the US and works with international suppliers to provide a global service offering across all major clinical research countries.

As well as home healthcare services, the MRN also offers a site support service where nurses and/or site co-ordinators can be placed into sites. Site support ensures trials are given the focus they need within often overstretched research sites; nurses can be placed as individuals into one or more sites, or deployed as teams to work across regions ensuring patients are identified screened and enrolled into trials rapidly.

MRN also has a strategic partnership in place with World Courier to boost the global reach and effectiveness of community-based clinical trials. The new model combines the MRN’s expertise as an innovator in at-home clinical trials with World Courier’s scale as the global leader in specialty logistics, which will ensure the integrity of trial products all the way to the point of patient administration.

It also provides MRN access to the resources of World Courier’s parent company AmerisourceBergen — including MyCubixx (an RFID-enabled product storage system), as well as specialty pharmaceutical dispensing in select global markets.

Home Trial Support

The MRN operates a series of partnerships with nursing organisations throughout Europe, North America and many other countries enabling them to set up nursing teams to run home trial support.

We split countries in to three tiers based on these criteria: Tier one…

Pharmacy Support

The MRN can provide central pharmacy and specialised logistics services via partner organisations for delivery of IMP to either investigator sites or the patients own home.

The MRN can handle delivery at ambient temperature or under cold chain conditions using specialised courier services where appropriate. We can also handle devices and drug administration supplies, which can be quite bulky or need constant refreshing of stocks in the patients home. All our partners have QPs and between them have the various licenses…

Site Support

Research undertaken by the MRN reveals that 25% of physicians would like to take part in clinical trials but just 6% actually do. Half of these only ever take part once. Within this group the key reason for not participating in clinical trials is due to a lack of nursing resources.

The MRN can provide specialist clinical research nurses and study site coordinators (SSCs) that are placed directly in the research site. These additional resources will not only manage the patients but will also perform day-to-day administrative burdens thus releasing investigators for patient care and other principle investigator activities. The nurses are fully trained and able…
