Keys to success with the clinical trial supply chain

With the growing reach of clinical trials and the shorter time lines, it's crucial for any sponsor company to ensure the proper measures are taken to lead to a successful trial.  Extensive planning should take place both before and during the trail.  Sponsors should know their endpoint and work backwards to ensure that everything is in place.

Clinical trial supplies more often than not occupy the critical path bottleneck in terms of availability, therefore affecting cycle times for getting new drugs to market. There are a number of best practices and tools that can be used both before and during the trial to ensure that the clinical supply chain is managed more effectively and operates more efficiently.

This is an excerpt from the white paper recently published by Clinical Trials Services.  It details the measures that should be taken in order to successfully run a clinical trials supply chain.

This fall at the 10th Annual Global Clinical Trial Supply Chain Management Event taking place September 10-12, 2012 in Boston.  It is a one of a kind event for clinical trial supplies, logistics, operations, purchasing, packaging, materials management, and clinical manufacturing executives.  For more information on the sessions, download the agenda.  It will take place as a part of the Clinical Business Expo.  If you would like to join us, as a reader of this blog, when you register to join us and mention code XP1725BLOG, you'll save 15% off the standard rate.
