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.

Sourcing Commercial Drugs for Clinical Trials: US vs. EU Understanding the Differences

Myoderm

Sourcing commercial drugs for clinical trials is a dynamic process. There are many factors to consider: single source or regional sourcing, strategy, price, supply availability, lead times, and documentation are just a few. In the past, there were fewer clinical trials that required commercial drug sourcing, so demand was not as high. Today, the demand for commercial drugs in clinical trials has greatly increased and, as a result, inventory is tighter, orders are monitored more closely by manufacturers, and lead times have increased. This report highlights the key differences in sourcing from the US and EU.
