CenterWatch conducted the survey of investigative sites across Europe between January and March 2010. The biennial survey, which has been conducted since 1997 in both North America and Europe, was developed with input from clinical research professionals at sponsor companies, CROs and investigative sites. A total of 924 investigative sites completed the survey, which evaluated the performance of CROs across 29 specific relationship attributes relating to general project management, personnel and work-style and project-specific areas. In addition, sites also provided feedback on the importance of these attributes when conducting their clinical trials.
Kendle's rating as a top CRO in the 2010 European Investigative Site Survey follows its strong performance in the annual CenterWatch investigative site surveys during each of the past four years. In the 2009 CenterWatch survey of U.S. investigative sites Kendle ranked second with 72 percent of sites surveyed rating the Company as "Good" or "Excellent." Kendle also ranked second in the 2008 CenterWatch Survey of European Investigative Sites and ranked first overall in the 2007 CenterWatch Survey of U.S. Investigative Sites.
