  • Evaluating Challenges with Clinical Trial Supply Logistics in the Less Developed World

    While emerging regions are proving to be good sources of clinical trial subjects and sites, they are often the most difficult regions to reliably reach and maintain. Unexpected political and natural events occur and although regional idiosyncrasies are a given, they still need to be addressed. Additional challenges can significantly impact the cost and success of a clinical trial.

    This webinar will further explore the challenges that we face in the industry today due to the globalization of clinical trials and the increased penetration in less developed countries. The discussion will provide guidance on how to address:

    • Changing regulatory & customs requirements
    • Challenging infrastructure
    • Specific handling & transportation needs of new drugs
    • Differing quality standards
    • Regional idiosyncrasies

    The result is a well defined, smooth and sustainable process, mitigating risk from beginning to end.
