The QP process is a necessary process that every sponsor company wishing to undertake trials in, or move product through the European Union must undergo. When faced with this process, many companies are unsure as to what to expect.
To ensure the timely delivery of the necessary supplies, a sponsor must have a strong clinical packaging strategy that takes into account the most important details of its clinical study design. The goal is to be able to respond appropriately to any surprises or issues that could not only jeopardize your study but also potentially delay your product’s development and launch.

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.
