International Clinical Trials

On the Lake

Clinical trials require the management of more data than ever before, but many of the tools available on the market have prodigious shortcomings in both this and safety. Sponsors and CROs struggle to collect, synthesise and analyse information from myriad siloed sources, which affects their understanding of drug safety and slows data reconciliation for submission. An alternative approach to data integration could power the next generation of clinical innovation by bridging the functional and structural gaps between information management and pharmacovigilance (PV).

Regulatory agencies are concerned about trial data quality and patient safety. The recent emphasis on risk management in the latest ICH E6 (R2) guidelines makes it clear that there is significant work to do in removing the barriers to data review, quality oversight and safety monitoring. Both sponsors and CROs rely on an increasing number of systems and datasets to manage complex and often decentralised clinical studies. Their data are often siloed, which makes obtaining a holistic picture of the trial challenging.

Most data management solutions on the market today are inflexible and fall short in their ability to power the solutions needed to best manage clinical research, particularly as they pertain to timely interfaces with PV. All PV systems will ultimately provide information in the E2B format as required, but data structures from clinical data management systems (CDMS) vary, and conversion to study data tabulation models or other formats can delay key deliverables for holistic study risk and safety management.

pAVEway™ expression system for the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

One of the major bottlenecks in the production of biopharmaceuticals is the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins in microbial or mammalian cells. The Escherichia coli pAVEway™ expression system described here has been developed to ensure high product titres and efficient scale up to GMP manufacture, whilst minimising many common issues seen in other expression systems, such as ‘leaky’ expression (expression of recombinant protein in the absence of inducer).
