• Basket Clinical Trial Designs: The Key To Testing Innovative Therapies Is Innovation In Study Design And Conduct

    As the science behind therapeutic interventions has deepened and grown, the clinical trial designs through which those interventions can be best tested have evolved as well. To study therapies directed against specific abnormalities, in cancer for example, it may make sense to include anyone with the target abnormality in the trial population, regardless of the location of their cancer.

  • ePRO And Agile Methodology: A Winning End-to-End Solution For Oncology Studies

    In oncology clinical research, patient reported outcomes (PRO) have historically been collected on paper. This white paper describes a unique, agile ePRO deployment methodology used by a global clinical trial technology company, discusses the benefits of using ePRO in oncology trials, and explains why this agile process is beneficial for oncology trials.

  • Simple SOP Updates Every Research Site Needs To Succeed At Remote Monitoring

    Today’s crisis climate is creating a dichotomy in clinical research. As a result, sites are closing, medical facilities are enforcing access restrictions, and there are constant delays or stoppage of non-essential studies. On the other hand, this health crisis is highlighting the critical need for clinical research due to ongoing COVID-19 trials. As a result, clinical researchers are asking questions and seeking workarounds to continue operations in response to site-specific adjustments. One central issue has surfaced — how do we continue to maintain compliance when working from home?

  • FDA Inspections Need Not Be Stressful

    As a stakeholder in a research facility the prospect of an inspection by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may elevate your blood pressure and induce feelings of panic. But according to Dr. Harvey Arbit, "the FDA inspection process should go quite smoothly if you're doing everything right." Still nervous? Don't be.

  • Fast Track To Flexible Clinical Trials

    So, about that clinical trial running right now. In several countries. Clinical setting required. Hmm. We at ISR are speculating that sponsors are shopping around for providers who can adapt, and adapt quickly, to current times. We know that outsourcing is already a challenging undertaking – which CRO is best-suited to conduct a given trial? Who will perform the best? These are loaded questions in normal times, and we provide the reliable data needed to tackle them. Every year we survey hundreds of clinical development outsourcers to share their perspectives and experiences regarding CRO selection and performance evaluation. Did we have the foresight to ask about trial adaptability in the face of a global pandemic? Unfortunately, no, but some findings suggest change is coming.
