Tawazun Health Foundation – Research

COVID-19 has placed on hold over 100 clinical trials into NAFDL/NASH as well as many other liver related studies.

In the COVID-19 and post COVID-19 period we can offer assistance in locating patients for clinical trial recruitment

The location and/or  lack of a Fibroscan is NO LONGER NOT a barrier to having Fibroscan access to assist you to identify candidates for your clinical trials

Patients with NAFLD/NASH are more anxious about travel and exposure given their increased risk of severe COVID-19 and locating the most suitable and appropriate patients with the highest chance of fulfilling recruitment criteria can help in gaining some of the valuable time lost

If you wish to discuss how our team can assist you in improved patient identification, reducing screening failure rates and catching up some of the lost and valuable time then contact us.
