Rate of recruitment of patients

From November 2001 to now we have been steadily recruiting into MaGiCAD.  Throughout that time there has also been various numbers of full and part-time Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) recruiting patients into MaGiCAD.

The aim of this analysis was to determine at what rate recruitment into MaGiCAD had run over the past 2.5 years, and to determine how much longer it would take to finish recruitment.

The following graph shows the numbers of patients that have been recruited into MaGiCAD as time has gone by:

To reach our final goal of about 1600 patients will require about 35 months recruitment per CRA who is recruiting patients.
