A Safety Net

Clinical trials liability (CTL) insurance will always have at its heart ‘putting it right’ for the patient or participant undergoing the trial if something goes wrong. However, trial insurance has many other interwoven strands, of which you may not be aware.

High-profile media coverage of clinical trials disasters such as the 2006 ‘Elephant Men’ trial at Northwick Park and the Rennes incident in 2016 lingers long in the mind of the public, but, in truth, clinical trials have an excellent safety record.

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.
