The company's specialists are working in accordance with local and international standards, GCP requirements, EMA, FDA and the company's SOPs. To make sure that our concepts meet the most current treatment standards, we collaborate with Key opinion leaders in different nosologies, in which studies are to be conducted. Documents can be originally presented in Russian (for EAEC) or in English (other cases) and then translated to target languages.
All documents for clinical trials planned for conduct in EAEC are prepared in accordance with the requirements of Ministry of Health of Russia. Our employees regularly pass trainings and participate in seminars conducted by this organization, which helps us to consider current and even future requirements.
When it is scientifically justified, our specialists will offer adaptive clinical trial design that enables us to minimize sample size and number of treatment groups, shorten study timelines and decrease study cost as a result.
Clinical trial with adaptive design – is a study with pre-determined possibility to modify one or more elements of study design based on the interim study results, such as inclusion criteria, randomization procedure, treatment regimens in different therapeutic groups, sample size, concomitant therapy, schedule of research procedures, final endpoints and methods of statistical analysis. The most common examples of such studies: combined phase II-III studies and a recalculation of sample size on the results of the interim analysis.
If necessary, our specialists will perform translation of documents. Our translators undergo a thorough selection and have necessary diplomas and certificates. We offer two main options for translations QC:
  • Back-translation
  • Two-step verification (proofreading)
