ICTS Awarded Contract for Fifth Consecutive Fibromyalgia Study

Raleigh, NC, March 10, 2010 --( Tom Sturgis, president of ICTS (Integrated Clinical Trial Services, LLC) (, has announced that the company has been awarded its fifth consecutive patient enrollment services contract in a series of fibromyalgia studies with the same sponsor. ICTS has been working with this sponsor, a major pharmaceutical client, on its fibromyalgia franchise since 2006 and has compiled an arsenal of strategies for recruitment and retention of the highest quality patients in the shortest amount of time in the most cost effective manners.

In developing its project plan, ICTS was able to take advantage of several operational efficiencies, compiling an extensive archive of materials developed for the sponsor’s previous studies and fine-tuning them. The result is a broad range of images, patient communication text, video footage, two-tier call screening scripts, and an experience level in identifying, vetting, and providing qualified prospects that will allow sites to maximize their enrollment potential for this study.

“This is a great example of how our long-term strategic associations can help our sponsors achieve their goals more quickly and with less cost,” said Sturgis. “This strategic initiative reduces cost with each new study and allows us to focus our efforts more efficiently on those methodologies that are most effective within a single patient population.”

- ICTS works to create unique, time-sensitive strategies to meet pharmaceutical clients’ clinical trial enrollment challenges.
