In this post, we discuss elements and lessons learned from a recent BARDA funded Influenza A Phase II study. The study’s purpose was to assess the efficacy of the Sponsors IP in treating severely ill and hospitalized Influenza A patients. Subject Detail: The study was targeted to enroll a subset of the general Influenza A global population. The study inclusion criteria required that each patient be ill for a certain number of days which could not be exceeded. The subject must also be hospitalized and specifically on oxygen therapy.
Clinical Trials are large complex projects, and occasionally a sponsor may need to make a change to bring an underperforming project back on schedule. This type of change is not taken lightly by sponsors. Making such a transition takes time and a large investment in coordination and additional money. In this post, we will take you through a general scenario for a full-service contract research organization (CRO) transition. Our example will show when a sponsor fully transitions from the CRO currently running their study to a new CRO taking over and finishing it off. You may be wondering, “how long would that take?”. After reading this article, you will have the answer based on generally accepted timetables.
