Drug Development Consultancy CLINICAL SERVICES

Consultancy services in support of clinical drug development

The clinical phase is the most complex, expensive, and lengthiest period of a medicinal product’s development. In addition, this phase bears the highest risks for the product’s survival. Often, study results are inconclusive, making it tough to decide how to progress forward or stop the entire development program. Sometimes companies advance their programs into more costly next steps based on inconclusive data and consequently incur significant financial losses.

About 70% of the products in phase 1 will move to the next stage, and about 33% will move on to the phase 3 portion (often an extremely costly and protracted phase). Finally, 25 to 30% of these candidate medicinal products will be subject to regulatory submission. Several drug candidates will finally fell at this stage.

We cannot guarantee that your product will succeed. However, we can provide competent advice to mitigate the risks of the inconclusiveness of your study results, contributing with this to investment optimization and timeline improvements. We’ll help you focus right from the beginning on those factors that are critical to ensuring a conclusive outcome of your studies.

Bring Your Clinical Trials Into the Future with Decentralized Approaches

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated adoption of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs), and regulators now endorse thoughtful incorporation of virtual and remote elements to improve trial access, experience, and efficiency. With specialized expertise, Accelsiors helps sponsors harness the power of decentralized trials.

Our approach is tailored and strategic based on the therapeutic area, phase, and specific trial needs. We identify which modular DCT elements—like telemedicine, mobile apps, and remote monitoring—can be implemented to collect high-quality data while enhancing convenience.

With relationships cultivated among global health authorities and experience securing DCT approvals during the pandemic, we smooth the regulatory path for sponsors looking to adopt decentralized trial designs. Real-time access to the latest regional DCT regulations ensures optimized regulatory strategy.

At Accelsiors, we balance innovation with pragmatism. Our hybrid approach integrates on-site and decentralized procedures for a streamlined trial execution. With patient diversity and convenience at the center, we broaden access and represent all populations.

Bring your clinical trials into the future with decentralized elements that deliver data integrity, recruitment gains, and process efficiencies. Let our specialists guide your DCT journey.
