  5. The Evolution Of Risk Management In Clinical Trials
    6/17/2019

    The cloud has made anywhere/anytime, centralized monitoring (adaptive-on-site and off-site) of all risk-related trial factors a seamless reality. Looking ahead, the cloud can integrate centralized monitoring, risk management measures, and predictive analytics. It can also create risk repositories, to keep trial costs in check and optimize better quality results for life saving therapies.

    As pharmacovigilance adopts next-generation technology by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and the cloud, new possibilities are opening up for knowledge generation – and thus value – from the data collected and processed. This paper looks at three important developments around drug safety data and their analysis and how industry is prepared for them.

  7. 2018 vs. 2010 FDA Draft Guidance For Industry On Adaptive Designs For Clinical Trials Of Drugs and Biologics
    6/13/2019

    In September 2018, FDA issued a new draft Guidance for Industry on Adaptive Designs for Clinical Trials of Drugs and Biologics. This guidance replaces the previously published 2010 draft guidance. Here, we summarize the differences between the two documents and highlight any significant new elements introduced in the most recent material. Of note, the 2018 guidance is more compact and streamlined than its 2010 predecessor, also evident by a fewer number of total pages (36 vs. 50 in the 2010 version).
