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.

Customising the Cold Chain

World Courier

Of all the statistics emerging around the global pharmaceutical industry this year, two big numbers capture the attention of both manufacturers and their logistics partners: $248 billion, the amount the “BRIC” nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are poised to account for in pharmaceutical sales for by 2016; and $8 billion, the amount global pharma will spend on cold chain logistics in 2014. Why are these two numbers so noteworthy? They demonstrate that as R&D goes, so goes logistics. As products evolve to meet demands for more targeted therapies, demand for more targeted logistics solutions grows as well. And that means a need for customization for everything from clinical trial samples to finished product.
