  1. Moving Beyond Excel To Purpose-Built Applications For Speedier Study Startup
    3/28/2016

    With a proliferation of cloud-based technologies already improving clinical trial performance, it is surprising that Excel spreadsheets are still a predominant force. Research dating back to the late 1990s and early 2000s documents that Excel was not designed to collect and analyze clinical trial data and it lacks project management capability, yet its extensive use persists.

  2. Automating eTMF Generation In A Multi-Partner Ecosystem
    3/28/2016

    goBalto’s central platform offers significant cost savings, reduces GCP compliance risk and strengthens real-time collaboration across global study teams.

  3. Wearable Electronics In Clinical Trials
    3/24/2016

    Advances in sensor technology and microelectronics have opened new opportunities in the health and life sciences industries. Wearable sensors allow for continuous bio-monitoring without any manual intervention, thus reducing provider-patient interaction and costs while contributing improvements in the quality of the data.

  4. Benefits And Challenges Of EDC Adoption In Clinical Trials
    3/24/2016

    What are the main benefits of EDC implementation? How does it contribute to the cost-efficiency of clinical trials? What are the challenges and limitations that sponsor companies can expect when implementing EDC solutions?

  5. Pioneering Cloud Computing For Clinical Trials
    3/24/2016

    How is cloud technology revolutionizing the healthcare and life science industries, enabling pharmaceutical companies to bring their drug to patients faster at a lower cost?

  6. Can Your Clinical Studies Afford Not To Go Electronic?
    3/24/2016

    Electronic Data Capture (EDC), which collects clinical trial data electronically rather than on paper, has become an increasingly popular solution for streamlining data processing.

  7. Top eClinical Trends Report
    3/24/2016

    Clinical research is well on its way to transforming its paper-driven model to an all-things-electronic format. This paper focuses on the top eClinical trends in 2015 and 2016. During the past year, the clinical trial industry has made considerable progress in adopting technology as a way to streamline data collection, transmission, and monitoring.

  8. Critical Success Factors For Clinical Trials Of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors
    3/4/2016

    Oncologists and their patients have had reason recently to be encouraged by the launch of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for the treatment of several difficult-to-treat diseases, including metastatic melanoma and non-small cell lung cancer. These novel agents activate the human immune response against antigens expressed on tumor cells, and the science has generated excitement among physicians, patients, the media and researchers.

  9. The New EU Clinical Trials Regulation: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
    3/4/2016

    The time and costs of conducting clinical trials in the European Union grew significantly.

  10. EDC Platforms: What’s Right for You?
    3/4/2016

    EDC systems are designed to collect clinical trial data directly from clinical sites over a secure web-based connection. Common components of EDC systems include: an administrative console for creating users and managing role-based security, a graphical user interface (GUI) for data entry, a validation engine to execute edit checks and verify the validity of the data entered into the system, a developers’ interface to build the electronic case report forms and program edit checks, and a reporting module providing both standard and ad hoc reporting capabilities and ability to export data. There are a number of EDC systems available.
