As illustrated below, SMERUD has a very wide experience base, which is only natural due to our almost 30 years of existence. We are not specializing in any particular therapeutic area, but as a reflection of the kind of clinical trials that are preferably being conducted in the Northern European countries, the below figure shows that the most frequent ones are:

  • oncology,
  • dermatology,
  • rheumatology,
  • cardiology, cardiovascular and renal
  • CNS/neurology/psychiatry
  • gastroenterology,
  • vaccination/immunology,
  • rare disorders


For some specific disease or indications, we have attained sufficient knowledge and experience so that we will claim expert level competency. For those disorders, we would be able to independently design clinical development programmes and regulatory strategies, and write full-borne scientific documents such as grant applications, (regulatory) briefing packages, clinical study protocols, clinical study publications and review articles.
