Internal Medicine

Epidemiological data shows a steady rise in autoimmune disease over the last few decades. There are now more than 80 known types, including Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Scientific understanding of inflammatory diseases is progressing.  However, unmet needs for sustainable, effective therapies persist. Clinical trial design and patient recruitment is more complex than ever. We have the knowledge to help you overcome the strong competition at site level.

Immunology global clinical trial experience

We have the insight and experience to deliver an effective operational strategy you're your clinical study. Our work with diverse populations, therapies, and investigational sites informs our planning and executing of high performance in studies.

The following indications are areas where we have specific expertise and a reputation for delivering patient enrollment targets. 

Inflammatory bowel diseases

Key indications: Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and eosinophilic esophagitis. Over the past 7 years, we have conducted 46 studies in IBD, involving 4,500 patients at nearly 4,000 sites worldwide. 

Dermatology and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)

Key indications: psoriasis, psoriasis arthritis, atopic dermatitis, and SLE.
Over the past 5 years, we have conducted 45 clinical trials, enrolling over 12,000 patients from over 1,700 sites.


Key indications: rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Over the past 5 years, we have conducted 38 clinical trials, enrolling over 16,000 patients from over 2,300 sites.


Respiratory Key indications: asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis. Over the past 5 years, we have conducted 36 clinical trials, enrolling over 7,500 patients from over 900 sites.

Applied technology to support better results

Our applied innovation, combining technology with best practice processes allows us to bring you optimal integrated solutions. FIRECREST, our clinical site management and e-learning platform, centralises and streamlines communications across the study. This enables transparency in communication and training to our sites and project teams. ICONIK, our technology platform to analyse the operational and clinical data collected during clinical development.  This supports better decision making and the successful implementation of clinical trial strategies, leading to significant efficiencies. 

Therapeutically aligned clinical professionals

We have 90+ Project Directors, Project Managers and Clinical Trial Managers specifically trained in this therapeutic area, distributed globally. 

  • 200+ clinical studies in inflammatory indications
  • 60,000 patients at 10,000+ global sites involved over 5 years
