    The Real Miracle Of Drug Development: Immunity From Inflation!

    They say there are two certainties in life: death and taxes. If we were to add a third certainty to that list, it might be that we generally have inflation as well. But if rising prices on consumer goods are a fact of life, why are some people surprised when the cost of prescription drugs increase as well?

  • Collaboration Seeks To Simplify Investigator Engagement
    Collaboration Seeks To Simplify Investigator Engagement

    Anyone involved in clinical work knows investigator engagement is not an easy task. Gathering real-time feedback during a trial, selecting the right investigators, and effectively engaging with sites and investigators can be a monumental challenge.

    Earlier this year Invesco Perpetual, an investment firm with holdings in Big Pharma companies including Pfizer, Merck, and GSK, announced a $50 million investment in DrugDev, a data sharing platform for clinical trial doctors with an online network of more than 80,000 clinical trial doctors in 93 countries. DrugDev stated at the time that the money would be used to enhance its clinical trial technology as well as acquire companies with complementary technologies. The first of those companies is CFS Clinical. DrugDev announced it has acquired the company, a provider of business and financial management activities for trials, as part of its plan to help companies control the spiraling cost of clinical trials.

  • Advances In Electronic Data Capture Of Medical Data
    Advances In Electronic Data Capture Of Medical Data

    Electronic Data Capture (EDC) refers to the collection of medical data for patients enrolled in clinical trials. The most common mechanism is for staff at the investigative site to enter the data into a web-based interface, and for staff at the sponsor company to monitor the data using the same interface but with different security permissions. By Keith Howells

  • New Molecular Entities (NMEs) The Path Of Resistance

    On a global scale, the number of new molecular entities (NMEs) in development—and, more importantly, the number being approved by regulatory authorities— has dropped significantly in recent years.

  • Moving Towards An Electronic Environment In Clinical Trials

    With each passing year, clinical trials are becoming increasingly global. The business of product development is moving away from the traditional model in which studies are conducted primarily in the US – in fact, recent estimates indicate that within the next three years, up to 65 per cent of studies under FDA regulation will be conducted outside the US. A review of a US government clinical trials registry and of 300 published reports in major medical journals revealed that one third (157 of 509) of Phase III trials were being conducted entirely outside the US, with over half the study sites (13,521 of 24,206) used in these trials located overseas, many in eastern Europe and Asia.
