International Clinical Trials

Perfect Planning

The cell and gene therapies being developed today have the potential to cure diseases. To make those treatments possible, another industry has to evolve: logistics. In the past two decades, gene-based clinical trials have increased by almost 500%. The global market for regenerative medicines – including cell therapies, gene/gene-modified cell therapy and tissue engineering – is poised to reach $67 billion in 2020.

While the majority of cell and gene therapies are still experimental – aimed at rare single-gene disorders – researchers hope to build on their successes to develop treatments for multi-gene disorders, including heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. This makes the success of clinical trials now vitally important to humanity. However, therein lies the challenge. Unlike traditional medicines, these therapies contain living cells or viral vectors that must be protected to ensure their survival and effectiveness.

Therapies that contain these materials are produced and packaged under strictly controlled conditions. They must be transported around the world and delivered on time at optimum temperature to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. This must be done regardless of weather, traffic, mechanical difficulties, staffing irregularities, customs regulations or processing delays.

How To Increase Efficiency, Customer Satisfaction and Reduce Cost

AC Labels

A customer of Riverside Medical had required a complex four-part 'piggy back' label. The labels needed to be specially constructed to facilitate removal in parts at various stages of its use for quality control traceability. This label needed to carry variable data elements of LOT numbers, batch numbers and product descriptions, and also a secondary gamma indicator label placed on each of its 4 sections to prove its sterility following sterilisation.
