30+ years of Supporting Life Sciences
With the estimated cost of bringing a drug to market at $2.5 billion and the probability of success of getting to the market from phase 1 at less than 10%, clinical operations have never faced a more challenging environment than now.
While a typical phase 3 trial generates 900,000 data points, many companies still rely on Excel spreadsheets to bring data together from traditionally silo-ed sources. This takes time which limits the ability to drive decisions off clinical data in real time.
Monitoring services predominantly rely on routinely scheduled site visits to verify source data, resulting in high travel costs, and inefficient processes. 100% source data verification accounts for up to 25% of trial costs. However, it does not contribute to data quality value, instead alternative, risk based, approaches can benefit patient safety without such a significant cost contribution.
Inspection findings reflect this complex picture, with critical findings from EMA, MHRA and FDA focused on the following areas:
- Data capture, clean-up, analysis, integrity and management
- Risk based monitoring
- Sponsor trial management and CRO oversight
- TMF, QMS and essential document management
Reflecting these findings, the ICH GCP guidelines have been revised in 2017, thereby adding a further compliance challenge for clinical operations.
