SCORR Marketing and Applied Clinical Trials Release Report on Collaborative R&D in the Drug Development Industry

Applied Clinical Trials

Study on collaboration in the life sciences industry

Industry Kearney, Neb., Oct. 18, 2017

SCORR Marketing, a global health science marketing and communications firm, and Applied Clinical Trials have released a new study, Collaborative R&D Survey Report. The report details the extent to which collaboration in the life sciences industry occurs and provides insight into the factors that influence this collaboration.

“To fight the growing complexity and costs of drug development, drug sponsors are turning to a variety of strategies, one of which is collaborating on research and development (R&D),” said Anne-Marie Hess, senior strategic advisor at SCORR. “To help the industry better understand this strategy, we gathered information about attitudes toward collaborative R&D, its benefits and risks, which groups participate in such collaborations and why some partnerships are more productive than others.”

In addition, this report has information on why those in the industry think these arrangements are increasing, which stakeholders are more receptive to R&D partnerships and what types of medicines, therapeutic areas and medical devices will see more research and development through collaboration in the years ahead.

“Shared expertise and more efficient resource allocation were the two greatest perceived benefits of collaborative R&D,” said Lisa Henderson, group content director, Applied Clinical Trials, and Pharmaceutical Executive at UBM Americas. “What surprised us throughout the survey was the large discrepancy we found in some areas based on the respondents’ demographics — where their company was headquartered, the size of their company and their particular field.”

Points to Consider When Developing a TMF (Trial Master File) Strategy

Phlexglobal Ltd

Many organizations are currently outsourcing clinical trial activities to one or more contract research organizations (CROs). This strategy enables companies to leverage specialized expertise and take advantage of flexible resourcing throughout the conduct of a clinical trial. Outsourcing minimizes the costs of recruiting experts, building a team and maintaining an infrastructure. However, it can also add complexity as the organization looks to meets its compliance obligations regarding clinical trial documentation. The documentation referred to in Article 15(5) of Directive 2001/20/EC as the trial master file shall consist of essential documents, which enable both the conduct of a clinical trial and the quality of the data produced to be evaluated.1 This essential study specific documentation is also known as the TMF. As organizations try to minimize their reliance on paper files, the electronic TMF (eTMF) has emerged. A current industry initiative to standardize the organization of this content is known as the TMF Reference Model. This model is helping standardization efforts across paper and electronic systems. As companies implement outsourcing strategies, CROs and sponsor organizations look for a common foundation on which to build their TMF capabilities. The following paper outlines some of the challenges organizations face when outsourcing clinical trial activities to multiple contract research organizations and a strategy to facilitate partnering and management of trial information between sponsors and CROs.
