Disease areas for patient-focused healthcare market research…

Healthcare market research agency GKA, conducts patient fieldwork in a broad range of therapy areas. GKA has extensive experience in larger disease areas, such as diabetes, asthma and oncology, and the expert team routinely recruits patients with conditions as diverse as haemophilia, HIV/AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, obesity, epilepsy, fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s disease.

Knowledge

In addition to recruiting participants for studies in a wide range of more common conditions, GKA also has deep expertise in recruiting patients with rarer diseases. Orphan diseases such as Fabry disease or Gaucher’s disease, present a huge range of challenges. In these conditions incidence can be as a low as 1 in 117,000 people, which means there may only be a few hundred patients spread right across the country. The pool of potential patients can be reduced yet further if the study methodology calls for patients receiving a certain treatment.

Our range of Therapy Area Guides provides a snapshot into the different areas we can cover across varying incidences. Download these guides here.
