Coming to You

Finding patients who are not only willing to participate, but who can work both their personal and professional schedules around a clinical trial’s requirements, has grown increasingly difficult. Obstacles to overcome include the length of time required to source and keep such patients – especially when the studies are of a global nature – as well as unpredictable delays to the trial itself. Ensuring that timelines match with expectations, particularly when time is critical, has a decided impact on a manufacturer’s bottom line. By moving the trials from a hospital setting into patients’ homes, it becomes easier to recruit subjects and allows for faster completion of important studies.

At the Centre


Researchers are seeing the benefit of a patient-centric approach employing the direct-to-patient (DtP) model in order to address these challenges and move studies ahead more effectively. This approach not only puts participants at the centre of the trial experience, but is also designed to reduce inconvenience for them and their families as the study goes on.

Using this model, it is no longer necessary for patients to interrupt their lives with trips to the hospital – which, in some cases, can be many miles away – for procedures that can take several hours to complete. They are not subject to the office hours of doctors and nurses, and have more ownership of their schedule in relation to the trial.

Quality of Steel

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Steel quality is the summation of how well a steel meets its specified chemistry, the cleanliness of the steel or degree to which it is free of impurities or inclusion, homogeneity of the microstructure, grain/carbide size and in some instances if it meets the mechanical requirements for that particular steel. In the design and manufacture of tablet compression tooling, nothing is more important than the quality of the materials being used. The best manufacturing principals maintaining the tightest tolerances will result in tool failure if the initial material quality is poor. Material quality is the fundamental building block upon which all successive value added steps are laid. The majority of all tablet compression tooling is produced from steel and steel quality is the subject of this article.
