CROs And The Clinical Supply Chain – It’s Not Just A Label On A Box

Typically Clinical Research Organizations (CROs) involvement in the clinical trial process has centered on site management in terms of identifying potential sites and managing patient recruitment. They also offer services related to activities such as protocol development, data management, laboratory services, and toxicology analysis amongst others. Managing clinical supplies has always been seen as a backroom activity, one which sponsors tended to keep a firm hold on, perhaps highlighting their importance to the sponsor in terms of meeting First Patient In (FPI) deadlines.
