White Papers

  1. A Brief Synopsis Of Modern Randomization Methodologies And Technologies

    Randomized, double-blind clinical trials are the gold standard for adequate and well-controlled studies in modern times. However, prior to the late 1940s, randomization and blinding were not used in medicine and as result, bias was common.

  2. Beyond Procurement: Taking A Strategic Approach To Comparator Drug Sourcing

    Read our whitepaper on comparator drug, the mistakes companies make and tips for getting the best deal on sourcing.

  3. Study Startup: New Battleground In CRO Differentiation Strategy

    The drug development process is long, arduous, and costly, driving many sponsors to expand their use of contract research organizations (CROs). This move reflects sponsors’ sharper focus on core competencies as they shift the management and conducting of clinical trials to CROs.

  4. Study Startup Solutions Improve CRO Oversight Through Collaboration

    The relationship between sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) is strengthening as outsourcing becomes a clinical trial mainstay. Making this connection as productive as possible means continuing the transition away from tactical projects and toward strategic partnerships with both stakeholders have a vested interest in greater operational efficiency.

  5. Moving Beyond Excel To Purpose-Built Applications For Speedier Study Startup

    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.

  6. Automating eTMF Generation In A Multi-Partner Ecosystem

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

  7. Wearable Electronics In Clinical Trials

    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.

  8. Benefits And Challenges Of EDC Adoption In Clinical Trials

    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?

  9. Pioneering Cloud Computing For Clinical Trials

    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?

  10. Can Your Clinical Studies Afford Not To Go Electronic?

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