Compliance and Modernisation

The new ICH Good Clinical Practice (GCP) E6 Addendum Revision 2 (E6 R2) is the biggest amendment of the international guideline for over 20 years. The update was finalised in November 2016 and became effective in the EU on 14 June 2017, meaning organisations running clinical trials in this region should now be compliant with the new requirements.

However, in January 2017 – just two months after the new guideline was finalised – many were surprised when ICH announced that an even greater change is planned. The extra revision is being added to keep pace with the scale and complexity of clinical trials and to ensure appropriate use of technology.

Clinical Trial Site Contracting: The Conservative, Progressive and Hybrid Models

DrugDev

For the last 20 years, pharmaceutical companies have turned to a variety of clinical outsourcing solutions to reduce costs and improve timelines, enabling them to focus on their core value of research and development. In today’s tightly competitive market, companies are constantly striving for ways to further cut costs and reduce study startup cycle times, while maintaining quality. One of the key cost factors in global R&D spending, estimated at around $102 billion per Kalorama market research, is the cost of conducting clinical trials. CRO’s, which account for about 30% of the total R&D spending, have risen to the challenge of the clinical, technical and administrative management of these trials.
