Accessing Patients In Remote Locations Presents Challenges For Ambitious New Trial

Our client, one of the top major pharmaceutical companies approached us for guidance on how to run an ambitious clinical trial in the Asia Pacific region; a trial involving 10+ countries, 74+ sites with 400+ shipments across the region.

This trial presented many challenges – cold chain IMP that needed to be kept at specified temperatures from point of origin to site delivery; late stage labelling of supplies to accommodate adaptive trial timelines; the need to access patient populations across many different countries in the Asia Pacific region and in many remote locations; multiple latent changes in client requirements; shortened timelines for fast drug approval. It became apparent that this Sponsor was going to totally rely on the Fisher Clinical Services team to manage this trial from start to finish.
