Date: 18 October


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Clinical trials are growing in complexity, particularly with regards to laboratories.

There is a tendency to include unnecessary protocols and inappropriate laboratory procedures in studies that can lead to complicated study sample logistics and large courier costs as a result.

Early engagement of a central lab during a clinical trial planning phase can save a lot of money and time for the study sponsor as well as a lot of unnecessary stress to the project management and investigator teams. We would like to share with you few real life cases that we have experienced in the last couple of years.

We will present the consequences of the protocol's initial assumptions, our proposed solutions and the achieved results. In such a competitive market as Pharmaceuticals, drug developers cannot afford to waste money and must utilize expertise and experience of all clinical trials parties, especially central laboratories, at the earliest possible stage of a clinical trial.
