Pharmas Almanac | December 20, 2019
The clinical trial landscape is rapidly evolving, and novel medicines are transforming how trials are conducted daily around the world. As the experimental therapies being investigated become increasingly complex, so do the logistics of implementing them and the analytical methods and technologies needed to evaluate their safety and efficacy. At the same time, clinical trials are increasingly global, and companies are moving away from the traditional single-center paradigm toward a range of decentralized and virtual trials models.

Time is of the essence in drug development and commercialization, which is why being first to the clinic and first to market is essential in the industry. According to the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development, the cost to bring a drug to market in 2013 was on average $2.6 billion, up from $802 million in 2003 ($1 billion in 2013 dollars).¹ Over that same period, the average approval rate for drugs entering clinical development declined from 21.5% to just 12%.

The Value of Integrated Services Supporting the delivery of clinical trial materials requires more than a logistics service provider. Clinical trials are growing in number and complexity. More trials are dispersed over many locations in different countries of the world with varying regulations impacting the operating of clinical studies and the import/export of clinical trial materials. Often, patients are located in rural/remote areas and receive their medications and treatment in the home, rather than at investigator sites. Drugs are also becoming more complex, more sensitive to environmental conditions and more expensive.

Biological materials are shipped from collection and production sites to other locations for analysis and/or further processing. These materials require special handling, and their storage and shipment — generally at very low temperatures — must be achieved in compliance with various local, national and international regulations. Partnering with an experienced and reliable logistics provider can ensure the successful management of biological materials, even for the most complex supply chains.
Pharma's Almanac | April 11, 2019
Cell and gene therapies present a new frontier in targeted, patient-centric treatments for a wide range of rare diseases that have not been well addressed by more conventional therapies. However, owing to the unique supply chains —particularly for autologous cell therapies —strict temperature controls and short viability windows of these products, delivering these therapies to patients requires new levels of agility, flexibility and innovation in the logistical management of supply.
