Virtual trials are growing in acceptance. The patient-centric aspect of these trials makes them easier to recruit and retain patients and accelerate timelines, while also providing patient data to researchers in real time. But will virtual trials also mean the end of CROs?
It is certainly no surprise that risk management continues to hold the spotlight as a hot topic within the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry. With the increased focus by regulatory authorities on an organization’s ability to identify, mitigate, and control risks, the industry remains in a state of growth, developing and evolving practices to ensure proper alignment with industry best practices and regulators’ expectations. Many organizations are finding it difficult to establish and embed risk management practices, as doing so requires a paradigm shift from a traditional risk-averse industry culture.
The data landscape is evolving rapidly, and some pharmaceutical companies are taking strong positions to gain privileged and preferential access to data. Oncology is at the forefront of this movement and is heralding a wave of activity across other therapy areas.
This article is the third in a four-part series that investigates the disillusionment clinical research associates (CRAs) feel with their role today, why they feel that way, and what we can do about it. The series is based on a survey I conducted of almost 800 CRAs and line managers (LMs).
Dr. El Mustapha Bahassi, Associate Director of Clinical Laboratories at Medpace gives an overview of Central laboratories and the evolving world of immuno-oncology as well as current immuno-oncology biomarkers and detection methods.
Advancements in science and technology have helped researchers develop new treatments for some of the most common diseases known to man. For rare diseases, however, patients have limited treatment options. Advocacy groups and regulatory authorities continue to encourage rare disease research, and more and more scientists are stepping up to the task.
Life sciences companies are embracing the essential roles that real world data (RWD) and the generation of real world evidence (RWE) play in the development of new treatments for patients.This paper will explore three areas where RWD and RWE are being applied to improve the design and execution of clinical studies.
This paper is intended as a discussion of the commonly encountered hurdles in studying rare diseases and how a cohesive and holistic approach can mitigate issues and help bring new treatments to patients.

Good recruitment and retention is critical to the success of clinical trials. Get it right, and a trial will likely achieve its primary objective; get it wrong, and the time, effort, expense, and any patient participation is likely wasted. This article discusses how a new national approach to involving patients and the public in the U.K. is helping life sciences companies get it right the first time.
There has been an increasing and requisite focus on the needs of individuals affected by chronic or life-limiting disease, which has in turn resulted in a focus on the development of possible interventions and how they are administered. The success of participation and retention of these patients in clinical research, advancement of the drug development process, and adherence post-commercialization require the involvement of another critical expert — the caregiver.
Mike Novotny, founder and CEO of Medrio, shares an experience from early in his career of building databases that showed him by having the right data at the right time, doctors can make decisions allowing patients to live their best lives possible.
Conducting the advanced therapy supply chain orchestra is more than waving a stick at people – it is an “end to end”, complicated, inter-related system that requires controlled, consistent management. Following are some things you need to think about to develop the capability to provide a harmonious supply chain management system.
What it is, why it is important, and what sponsors need to think about as it gets closer.
Preventing patients from receiving “counterfeit, diverted, sub-potent, substandard, adulterated, misbranded, or expired drugs” is a critical element of the mission of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Chain of custody for genetic and cell therapies differs and is more complex than for traditional pharmaceuticals, and the requirements for documentation vary as well.
Read how new initiatives reinforce the importance of the patient’s voice, acknowledge the limitations of traditional approaches and build on the lessons that emerge from each new study.
