Collaborative projects

There are two situations in which international collaboration in conducting clinical trials could be very productive:

Very rare but important skin diseases:

For instance,toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). The only way of randomizing 200+ patients with TEN in a reasonable time frame is to conduct an international study. 

To conduct clinical trials much faster: 

Even recruiting people with common skin conditions such as atopic eczema can take around 2 years. 

By recruiting in several countries, recruitment could occur much more quickly - cutting down on the overall cost of the trial. Such costs have to be balanced by the increased costs associated with opening trials sites across different regulatory bodies.
