SDTM in Real Time, A Case Study: Initial Datasets by First Patient In; Final Datasets Within 24 Hours of Study Lock

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Last year’s renewal of the PDUFA act indicates that the FDA will require all submissions to include the clinical data in a standard format, within approximately 3 years. This standard is assumed to be the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) maintained by CDISC.

Alkermes has been producing standardized SDTM datasets using OmniComm’s Export Utility for regulatory submissions within their Electronic Data Capture system over the past 2 years.

This webinar will:

  • Cover mapping SDTM specifications during study design and also will describe the benefits of having an SDTM database available during study conduct and having the final datasets within 24 hours of database lock
  • Provide a brief overview of the technology that provides these capabilities
