Why Should You Attend:

A critical component in successful Clinical Research Trials is ensuring that you choose the right CRO/AOR based on the phase of the trial, the therapeutic area and the countries that the trials will be conducted. It is then important that the scope of the work be clearly defined to ensure that budget and timelines are respected and that the data collected will stand up to regulatory scrutiny. This protects both the CRO/ARO and the sponsor company. It also makes the job of the Project Managers on both sides easier.

This presentation will show how you can manage the CRO/ARO in this environment of multi-center, multi-country trials. We will discuss how you can ensure that you comply with regulations in the various countries from shipping drug to ensuring that the inclusion criteria are well understood in all countries and that the appropriate patients are enrolled. Diagnostic criteria are not always interpreted in the same manner. This is particularly true in some therapeutic areas such as CNS. We will also review the current trend towards enrolling pediatric patients as well as elderly and more vulnerable populations, and the challenges that go with it, in the various environments that studies are conducted.

Topic Background:

CROs and AROs are increasingly being utilized to conduct Clinical Research Trials that are pivotal to providing the data to the FDA that will be used to decide if the drug and/or device is safe and effective and approved for human use.

Clinical Research Trials are expensive and time consuming and have to be conducted so that they are adequate and well controlled. When Pharmaceutical companies delegate the management of clinical trials to either CROs or AROs they still retain the legal obligation to ensure that they trials are safe and well conducted. There are certain steps that have to be followed to ensure that when you are the pharmaceutical company Project Manager or Director in charge of the trial that the studies are well conducted and will have data that will support the NDA.
