Seven Reasons Growing Biotech's Bring Their eTMF In-House

Biotech companies starting their first few clinical trials typically do not have the resources to host an electronic trial master file (eTMF) in-house. For this reason, they often outsource to a CRO and use the CRO’s applicable software. If the study is successful and moves to subsequent phases, or if the biotech adds new studies to their portfolio, hosting the eTMF with subcontractors limits the biotech from moving operations in-house or engaging new CROs. Continue reading to learn more reasons why biotech companies are bringing their eTMFs in-house even if they outsource services to subcontractors.

Drug Safety And Product Protection Driving Blister Packaging Growth

Trends in packaging of prescription and over-the-counter drugs indicate continued growth in the blister packaging market. 

Successful BYOD In Any Phase

The idea of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) for use in clinical trials during any phase has historically been conceptualized as a futuristic alternative, rather than what it actually is — a viable option for many clinical trials. While there has typically been hesitance among sponsors and CROs to choose a BYOD model for their study, there is an increasing number of trials that have successfully deployed this model with great results. Read more about the advantages and misconceptions of BYOD and what you should consider if you are deciding whether BYOD is an option for your study.

Recruitment And Retention In Pediatric Clinical Research Trials

Janelle Allen, project manager and research coordinator in the Pain Research Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, gives an in-depth look at best practices that can be applied to meeting your organization's recruitment and retention goals.

6 Reasons You Don’t Use Pharmaceutical Market Research

If you're using one of these six excuses for ignoring pharma market research, you're failing to understand barriers to success, missing the market’s perspective, and leaving assumptions unvalidated.

Flexible Interactive Response Technology (IRT) Platform Solution For National Lung Cancer Trial

Trial design for a medicine trial to investigate treatment for non-small cell lung cancer presents unique challenges. These include the need for an interactive response technology (IRT) platform that can support the rapid incorporation of amendments and account for multiple or potential arms requiring different lists of material types and dosages that could be prescribed to patients and supplied to sites. Cenduit’s highly configurable, flexible technology platform was the solution.

Depot-To-Patient Service Overview

This infographic provides an overview of Fisher Clinical’s depot-to-patient solution to support decentralized clinical trials in the U.S.

The Art Of Recognizing Clinical Supply Risk Factors

No two studies are the same, and each clinical supply project carries unique risks. Experienced supply chain managers know that certain study characteristics are often leading indicators that they can anticipate a supply project will be complex in nature. Watch the webinar to learn about aspects of the study protocol that can directly influence clinical supply strategy.

Data Standards For eCOA In Clinical Trials

Adoption of data standards are necessary to underpin higher data quality, efficiencies, and integrated applications across increasingly complex clinical research processes. The adoption of data standards for electronic clinical outcomes assessments (eCOA), the fastest growing technology in the eClinical space, is critical to ensure quality and efficiency in this rapidly evolving discipline. This webinar will focus on Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) standards across data collection, tabulation, analysis, and submission.

Developing An Effective Data Asset Strategy For Wearables

A panel of wearable technology experts from ActiGraph, Takeda, Bristol Myers Squibb, Roche, and the University of California, San Diego, explore analytical and clinical validation of wearable technologies, the future of algorithms used in academic and clinical research, and more during this on-demand Spotlight Session from the 2020 CNS Summit.

Three Keys To Successful Global Sample Processing

Sample preparation and processing are crucial steps in immuno-oncology, cell-based and gene therapies, and diagnostics. In this webinar, we discuss proper sample collection and transport, leveraging a global network of labs vetted for high-quality processing, and successful delivery to essential global storage for all sample types.
