Abstract

Due to the changing population in patients with myocardial infarction, recruiting patients in clinical trials continues to challenge clinical investigators. The Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN) chose to expand the reach and power of its recruitment effort by incorporating both referral and treatment satellite centers. Eight treatment satellites were successfully identified and they screened patients over a two year period. The result of this effort was an increase in recruitment, with these treatment satellites contributing 30% of the patients to two of the three Network studies. The hurdles that these satellite treatment centers faced and how they surmounted them provide instruction to clinical research groups eager to expand to satellite systems and to health care practitioners who are interested in taking part in multicenter clinical trials.
