Data Monitoring Committees

A Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) is an independent panel of experts who periodically meet during a study to review clinical data.  The primary purpose of a DMC is to protect the rights of current and future subjects in the trial by reviewing safety and exposure data and making recommendations to the study sponsor based on the results.  A DMC may recommend the study continue with no modification, with modification, or stop all together due to safety concerns.  The DMC may also be tasked with making recommendations based on interim efficacy results such as sample size modification or stopping criteria due to efficacy or futility.

Our DMC Experience

In addition to Data Monitoring Committees, we develop and organize many types of committees with various remits.   No matter what you call them, we are experienced and can help you manage the following:

  • Data Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMB)
  • Independent DMCs (IDMC)
  • Safety Review Committees (SRC)
  • Data Review Committees (DRC)
  • Clinical Endpoint Committees (CEC)
