7th Anniversary Finding Unused Investigator Capacity

264 Companies Have Used ILS to Recruit Investigators on 553 Protocols

Newport Beach, CA - July 16, 2008 - Investigator Location Services, Inc. (ILS), the largest study broker with 20,000+ experienced investigators, reports the operational results since the company's launch in July, 2001. 264 sponsor and CRO companies have used ILS to recruit over 5,876 investigators for 553 protocols including difficult to place projects. ILS investigator recruiting services are free to sponsors and CROs as investigators pay ILS fees.

Rate Limiting Step

Finding experienced investigators for clinical trials remains one of the greatest, rate limiting obstacles to rapidly launching studies. Why?

  • Tufts reports a continuing decline in the number of US investigators
  • CenterWatch reports on the increased use of first-time investigators resulting in 50% never doing a second study
  • BCC Research reports on the increased number of trials in the U.S.


Finding Unused Investigator Capacity Rapidly

These facts mean that competition for experienced investigators in the U.S. is increasing and sponsors and CROs need to rapidly find unused capacity in a declining, fragmented investigator population. That is where Investigator Location Services, Inc. (ILS) steps in and rapidly finds the unused capacity.

More Sponsors and CROs Use ILS

"The first 7 years have been exciting at ILS& said Joe Bollert, Ph.D., President and CEO of ILS. "We have proven that the study broker concept can be run on a large scale and have gained wide acceptance with sponsors, CROs and investigators. More sponsors and CROs are coming to us as word continues to spread about our unique system and broad access to all categories of investigators. Although 50% of our projects are from repeat clients, 32 new clients came to ILS in the past year. Why? Because we can literally reach hundreds of investigators in any specialty in seconds and solicit their interest in a clinical trial. No one else has this type of instant access to such a large volume of experienced investigators to find unused capacity."

Comprehensive Outreach

ILS has instant access to 20,000+ investigators which represents most of the experienced investigators in the U.S. and covers all medical specialties.

Motivated & Experienced Investigators

The key to ILS’s success and repeat business from sponsors and CROs is that investigators who sign up through ILS are extra motivated to perform and experienced. Motivated, since they agree to pay ILS a fee when the study launches, ILS studies get a higher priority at the investigator’s site. Experienced, ILS investigators typically have ten or more years of clinical research experience.
