The Increasing Role of Technology in Supporting ICH E6 R2

  • 0
  • 16 Jun

As you may already be aware, a key recommendation in the latest revision to the International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH E6 R2), finalized in November 2016, is the use of a quality-based approach inclusive of risk-based monitoring (RBM). It also recommends centralized monitoring processes. These should complement and potentially allow you to reduce the extent and frequency of on-site monitoring, freeing up valuable resources and providing the opportunity to:

RBM SaaS Success: Avoid Validation Issues

  • 0
  • 30 May

As the industry and organizations' experience with risk-based monitoring and quality management in clinical trials matures, we're seeing a shift in the type of RBM systems being used. While custom-built systems were once many sponsors' go-to solution, we're increasingly seeing the use of off-the-shelf, cloud-based software, otherwise known as Software as a Service, or SaaS. (Disclaimer: Good news to us. Bioclinica offers a SaaS-based RBM solution, ClearSite.)

So why is RBM SaaS picking-up speed?

Realize the Benefits of a Fully Developed CTMS Without the Typical Time to Implement, Using OnPoint Direct CTMS

  • 25 Apr

In our experience, many small- to mid-sized companies view the implementation of a Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) to be too resource-intensive (finances, time and human resources); because of this and other reasons, many of these companies compromise with systems comprised primarily of manual processes using spreadsheets, half-built internal systems or less-than-ideal implementations. However, CTMS plays an integral role in the conduct of your trials, and the implementation should support your specific needs.

Top 5 Criteria for Your RBM Software Selection

  • 20 Apr

There is increasing recognition of the importance of implementing risk-based monitoring (RBM) systems to aid with the monitoring and reporting of relevant risks in clinical trials, rather than relying on traditional methods based on disparate data sources and manual collation processes. Software-based RBM systems automate predetermined monitoring tasks, provide alerts for identified risks and can provide audit trails for regulatory submissions. However, all RBM systems are not the same.

Risk Management and RTSM

  • 0
  • 17 Apr

The revisions in ICH E6 (R2) – Good Clinical Practice has garnered a lot of attention, not least because of the explicit recommendations for the incorporation of a formal risk analysis when planning and executing trials. The starting point for managing risk effectively is adopting a suitable risk analysis and mitigation method, such as risk scoring or failure modes effects analysis. We need to understand what could go wrong (hazard), what happens if it occurs (impact), how likely it is to happen (probability), and how likely we are to realize it has happened (detectability).

Clinical trials for patients with rare, debilitating diseases who have limited mobility and greater caregiving requirements can be challenging, particularly for clinic visits and medication adherence. But, we like a challenge. In a recent clinical trial, we collaborated with the sponsor to successfully ship the study drugs directly from the depot to a sample of US-based patients with a rare, progressive debilitating disease characterized by motor, cognitive and behavioral symptoms.

There is long-standing recognition that Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM) is essential to ensuring the safety of your patients and the success of your clinical trial. Data quality and patient safety are also at the core of quality by design (QbD) initiatives, which focus on identifying key risks to subject safety, data quality and GCP/regulatory compliance, setting the foundation for RBM implementation.

Some of my Bioclinica colleagues and I recently attended CBI's IRT 2016 conference in Philadelphia. While there were plenty of interesting topics discussed at the conference, one presentation particularly stuck out to me: the benefits of connecting supply chain forecasting for clinical trials more closely with interactive response technology (IRT) software. The reliance of effective clinical trial forecasting on IRT data is well understood within the clinical trial world, and was a big talking point at the conference.
