Think of the Children: Clinical Trial Considerations at Home

I recall writing my nursing degree dissertation 30 years ago on the ‘Passive Role of the Patient’. I was concentrating on diabetic patients in hospital undergoing treatment for reasons other than their diabetes. Management of their diabetes was taken away from them the moment they put on a gown and slippers; upon discharge from hospital, control returned and they resumed as masters of their condition! Now working in clinical trials, I am pleased to see that the terms ‘patient centricity’ and ‘patient empowerment’ are becoming common in our day-to-day language.

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


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.
