FEATURED ARTICLES

  • When it comes to gaining the benefits of electronic consent (eConsent) in clinical trials, site adoption is the key. Explore the steps up the ladder of eConsent adoption and reach new heights with every study.

  • Cenduit IRT study design teams took-on the challenges pressing biopharmaceutical industry sponsors as they worked to digitally enable sites and speed time to first-patient-in for COVID-19 therapeutic and vaccine trials.

  • More than 80 percent of sites surveyed want to get paid in 30 days, and many clinical technology companies offer specialized software solutions to help manage several components of the site payments process. However, these systems still require a large effort by the sponsor to operate. What is the secret sauce for success?

  • Year after year, slow and unpredictable investigator payments continue to be a top complaint from clinical study sites. Explore Bayer's Automated Site Payment Invoice Resolution project in the available white paper.

  • eClinical technologies are becoming more commonplace in drug development as biopharma adopts validated methods to maintain compliance; patient recruitment, engagement and safety; and supply chain forecasting. This white paper illustrates how sponsors are using electronic solutions for Drug Accountability (DA), because they recognize the significant increase in efficiency and accuracy that these methods provide.

     
  • Electronic consent (eConsent) technology has existed for nearly 20 years in various iterations. Read how sponsors overall have taken a cautious approach to using eConsent, piloting it on individual studies but refraining from incorporating it across all pipelines in clinical operations.

  • Electronic trial master file (eTMF) systems are proving to be effective in planning, managing, monitoring, and maintaining inspection-readiness and compliance. This paper explores the use of planning wizards and how placeholder creation promotes study completeness, timely document uploading, and reduced rates of quality control failures. These features can ease workloads while providing the transparency needed for inspections and audits.

  • When Alnylam Pharmaceuticals began development of medicines for rare diseases with few or no treatment options, the company’s leaders knew they needed to design clinical trials that kept patient well-being and disease burden at the forefront. As Alnylam’s first clinical program began in 2014, the study team saw emerging site-facing technologies as a foundation for those trusted relationships, starting with a purpose-built communication channel and easy-to-use study conduct tools to support a complex protocol.

  • Two of America’s greatest assets are its diverse demographics and its relentless pursuit of new medicines and treatments to improve patient lives worldwide. Unfortunately, it’s a widely known (but little discussed) challenge that the two do not go hand in hand. Minority participation in clinical trials is staggeringly deficient.

  • After go-live, the sponsor learned its study did not fit the existing IRT solution, affecting data quality, timelines, and drug supply shipments. The legacy system’s medication management algorithm could not support the required flexibility in the supply chain. The trial included an adaptive cohort design. Read how Cenduit delivered a high-quality study achieved through innovation, close client collaboration, and expert project management.

  • Trial design for a medicine trial to investigate treatment for non-small cell lung cancer presents unique challenges. These include the need for an IRT platform that can support the rapid incorporation of amendments and account for multiple or potential arms which require 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.

  • A Top 5 global pharmaceutical company wanted to help sites do everyday tasks more efficiently, making it easier for site staff to adhere to the protocol and deliver high-quality data. After evaluations and pilots, the company deployed IQVIA Technologies’ Investigator Site Portal (formerly DrugDev) in a 4-phase approach that delivered benefits each step of the way.

  • Conducting feasibility is an essential and necessary step to starting up a clinical trial. The good news is that the whole approach has the ability to change for the better by initiating and adopting some enhancements.
