Application Notes & Case Studies

  1. Feasibility Of Shipping Clinical Trial Drugs Directly To Patients’ Homes
    7/17/2017

    Conducting clinical trials for rare, debilitating diseases can be particularly challenging, owing to the smaller patient population with limited mobility and greater caregiving requirements. Direct-to-patient shipping of clinical trial drugs, while not typical, might help to reach these patient populations who otherwise would struggle to participate in and comply with clinical trials. However, implementation of this strategy is challenging because of many reasons such as the logistical considerations and regulatory requirements regarding patient confidentiality and quality control. Recently, Bioclinica collaborated with a sponsor to successfully ship study drugs directly to patients.

  2. eTMF: Intelligent Submissions of Regulatory Filings
    5/26/2017

    A leading global contract research organization (CRO) was manually uploading site documents and associated metadata into their eTMF. Due to the complexity of (SSU) and variability of regulatory requirements for study countries and therapeutic areas, determining when all the documents needed for filing existed in the eTMF without multiple QC checks was a time consuming and burdensome activity. As the organization scaled with additional study volume, the efficiency and quality of the data going into the eTMF was causing audit risk and increasing FTE costs.

  3. Achieve Continuous Supply Of Drug Treatment For Study Requirements
    5/25/2017

    A small sized pharmaceutical company was approaching the final phases of a large phase III global multiple treatment arm oncology study that involved comparator drug. The study criteria required the client to provide study medication to patients active at the conclusion of the study until the drug would be commercially available, when it could then be prescribed to patients continuing treatment.

  9. Avoid Wasted Trials: One Story Of An Estimated $100M Saved
    3/8/2017

    The complexity of clinical trials continues to rise. New biomarkers for safety and efficacy continue to emerge, and new types of information – like genomic profiles – have become critical to submissions for drug approval. Against this dynamic backdrop, the central challenge facing trial sponsors is the need to bring together diverse data sets, draw meaningful insights from them and act quickly to maximize return on investment.

  10. Modular Bioprocess Platform Gives CMO Maximum Flexibility
    2/15/2017

    Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly outsourcing product production to contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs). Doing so enables them to focus more of their resources on developing innovative new products and less on non-core, commodity activities, such as manufacturing. While this has been a boon for CMOs, it also creates new challenges as both their client base and related production demands rapidly diversify. Just staying on top of it all can be a big job.
