Clinical Trial Planning

Navigating the transition from lab to clinic requires an interdisciplinary team of scientific experts.

Comprehensive clinical trial planning is essential for transitioning the development of a medical therapy into clinical testing. A cohesive plan will maximize efficiency and minimize risks in gathering the necessary clinical data to ensure the safety and efficacy of the therapy. The planning process is highly complex, unique, and requires close collaboration between an interdisciplinary team of regulatory, clinical, medical, statistical, safety, and scientific experts.

We understand that NOT building the right clinical development plan can be catastrophic to you, your business, and your therapeutic. To give you an advantage Veristat has assembled a team of scientific-minded experts that is adept at strategy and execution.

Start Clinical Trial Planning Early

One of the most common questions drug developers working on their preclinical testing ask is, “when do we begin planning our IND (or CTA)?

The simplest answer is – it depends. Do you have the following?

  • Proof-of-concept scientific data
  • Early Pharmacokinetic information
  • Target Indications selected or prioritized for clinical trials
  • Evidence of GMP manufacture
  • Funding secured for clinical trials
  • Drug stability data
  • Nonclinical toxicology studies

Once you have decided to bring your therapeutic forward to clinical trials, it is then time to begin working on your IND/CTA and starting to plan your trial(s).
