The Evolution of Environmental Monitoring

Clinical trials are a complex undertaking and a huge investment for the sponsor, taking a significant amount of time to complete and to produce a marketable drug. Added complexity comes from the inherently global nature of recent clinical trials which are spreading operations over multiple nations, sites, and premises. Ensuring sufficient enrolment numbers and monitoring activities on multiple sites and suchlike justifiably take up a major portion of sponsor and investigator focus.

A Complicated Process

With the vast amount of analytical activities in a clinical study, it is easy to forget that even in national – and more so, in international studies – logistics complexity is a major concern. However, while logistics is a support function for the overall trial operation, it also needs planning to function efficiently.

In a drug trial, ensuring that the investigational medicinal products (IMPs) reach the site in good condition and that samples travel from collection points to laboratories in correct environments is paramount. With lab specialisation requiring long transportation distances and the parallel supply chains of international, regional, and local hubs often working without visibility to each other, guaranteeing the integrity of the supply is not always easy.

The Rare Disease Patients Experience

When planning a clinical trial for a rare disease, it is important to have a holistic understanding of your patient population. You want to be aware of where your patients are coming from, and what it is like to walk in their shoes. These patients need your trial just as much as you need them; even from the earliest stages, conceptualize your rare disease trial as an altruistic relationship between the patient population and your study.
