Aiding Pharma in Airfreight

Setting up a quality cold chain in the airfreight of time- and temperaturesensitive pharmaceuticals is not an easy task. Airfreight is known for its unique conditions.

Airfreight cargo is subjected to the local weather conditions, sunshine or solar power on the products, greenhouse effects, wind chill, etc, and extreme temperature environments (hot and cold), especially on tarmac locations where the airplanes are loaded in open-air. Cost-efficiency is another consideration, especially on low-price products and bigger volumes. Also, what about regulations and laws or norms, what about processes at the actors so the products are handled correctly, and so on? These are all questions that are challenged within the complete airfreight industry to create an efficient quality cold chain from shipper to receiver.

To offer a possible solution, the company Krautz-Temax engineered a unique thermal blanket that offers a high-performing thermal resistance (hot and cold), offers resistance against solar power and greenhouse effects, has a minimal payload impact, offers a Good Distribution Practice-compliant solution, and is fully recyclable and even reproducible to raw material level, guaranteeing a minimal impact on the ecological footprint.

Conveying Medical Guidance in Clinical Trials – A Survey

Europital Medical Consultancy

With the incremental demand for proactive safety surveillance throughout the conduct of clinical trials, the role of Medical Management is at the fore in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the participants. The complex responsibilities of a Medical Monitor (MM) starts from the design and development phase, through to study close out. Understanding the principle behind the protocol and the prospective medical solution the study would deliver forms the bloodline for the MM role. Often, the MM is the face of contact for both the site personnel and the study team members with regard to medical, safety and scientific issues within the project. When it comes to medical guidance, the communication channel used to deliver solutions contributes to a large extent in effectively managing decisive situations. Our previous study on acquiring medical guidance from an operations team perspective revealed that e-mails were the most used communication method (see the article, 'Talking Points', in ICT November 2014). In our efforts to further strengthen the mode of medical guidance delivery, we designed a survey to study the existing trend and constraints in this communication chain management, as outlined here.
