  • Patients look to disease and advocacy groups as trusted resources, particularly when it comes to clinical trials. These groups have a responsibility to provide accurate, up-to-date clinical trial information — and counter misinformation. Communication is key.

  • Utilizing the gold-standard clinical trials intelligence database Trialtrove, this analysis delves into the sponsors, diseases, and types of trials taking place in China, and considers the drivers shaping the present-day landscape. As the statistics show, the real explosion in clinical activity in China may be just starting.

  • In this year’s analysis, we dissect data from all Phase I–III clinical trials that started in a year dominated by COVID-19. The report reveals trends, discusses the industry’s evolution, highlights shifts in drug development strategies, and examines the emergence of (or declined activity in) key markets.

  • Do you suffer from text neck? Learn what it is, along with the causes, symptoms, and treatments for this common condition, with detailed images showing the biomechanics and anatomical structures involved. 

  • The COVID-19 pandemic created delays for trials that were planned for completion in 2020 and directly contributed towards trial terminations. Despite this, more diseases, and more indications outside of oncology, achieved at least 25 successful trials. Read the full report.

  • Are you ready for the new Clinical Trial Information System (CTIS)? With European Clinical Trial Regulation (EU-CTR) 536/2014 set to go into effect in January, all stakeholders will be required to submit study information through CTIS. Be prepared with these best practices.

  • Sponsors conducting study feasibility must weigh variables ranging from epidemiology to enrollment benchmarks. This lends itself to a machine-learning approach vs. manual analyses. Even greater time and cost savings can be realized when study feasibility is applied to trials in niche patient populations, where limited availability of data precludes conventional approaches.

  • Industry statistics reveal that up to 86% of clinical trials do not reach recruitment targets within their specified time periods. In order to turn that number around, sponsors should conduct feasibility studies starting with protocol development and study design. In doing so, they will be able to effectively identify countries, study sites and investigators for conducting the research.

  • As the race for a COVID-19 vaccine has painfully illustrated, minority groups remain grossly underrepresented in clinical trials. So how can study sponsors increase the diversity of clinical trial participants? Check out these top tips.

  • The Federal Court in Seife determined that in issuing a “Final Rule” HSS misinterpreted, and thus misapplied, certain clinical trial reporting requirements found in FDAAA. This white paper assesses the impact of a recent federal court ruling on clinical trial disclosure compliance and health authorities’ announcements upholding it.


  • There’s more involved in creating plain language summaries than meets the eye. This planning guide addresses all aspects of PLS, from regulatory requirements to team roles and timelines.

  • The coronavirus pandemic, with #COVID-19 clinical trials underway, underscores the importance for clinical data sharing, clinical trial transparency, and plain language summaries.

  • Many blood donors don't realize that their blood also can be used in clinical research. Now, as COVID-19 threatens to create blood shortages, donating blood is more important than ever.

  • A transparency policy must clearly define the following commitments related to disclosure, transparency and data sharing: protocol registration, results disclosure, clinical study report (CSR) synopses, full CSRs, plain-language summaries (PLS) and individual patient-level data (IPD). Access this guide, which provides a complete overview.

  • Transparency remains a buzzword in today’s society: transparency in government (such as Sunshine Laws), transparency in politics (revealing sources of donations), transparency in finance (SEC regulations), transparency in relationships. The pharmaceutical industry has recently been under pressure to increase transparency in drug pricing. All companies, regardless of the industry, should revisit their commitments to transparency. Here’s why.

  • Like any department within a pharmaceutical organization, clinical trial disclosure teams contribute to the bottom line and must be accountable. Here are five key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor on a regular basis.

  • The Good Pharma Scorecard, as its acronym suggests, is the industry GPS for clinical trial transparency. See what this year's top-ranked sponsors all have in common.

  • To many patients and caregivers, searching for clinical trials is a painstaking process. On top of that, medicalese is like a foreign language to them. Why make the process even more complicated by failing to translate your clinical trial information?

  • What’s CRO and what’s it got to do with clinical trial engagement and recruitment? No, it’s not clinical research organization. In digital marketing, CRO stands for conversion rate optimization, and it’s an important part of any online marketing strategy.

  • When the word “technology” is used in conjunction with clinical trials, many people think of how technological advancements have impacted the actual studies themselves. Wearables, mobile monitoring and the gamification of medicine are just three areas gaining traction. But let’s go back to basics. Clinical trials require participants, and recruitment is one area where study sponsors can use technology to their advantage. Following are a few examples of how clinical trial sponsors -- and, with a few tweaks here and there, any healthcare professional -- can use technology to boost public knowledge and accessibility.
