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.
