Clinical development strategy

100% of our projects have started with clinical development strategy

Understanding the corporate strategy and key performance indicators of our clients allows us to build a tailored clinical development strategy to create and add value and allocate capital for best return on investment, meeting our client’s objectives and milestones.

Be it to design a basket trial to generate actionable data, to identify experts or vendors to best support you trial, to assist you with submissions, to perform risk analyses, or to assist you in any other way, contact us.

We can also help with:

  • Devising and prioritising clinical development plan

  • Optimising clinical operations by advising on protocol design and trial execution

Clinical gap analysis

Is your clinical operations’ organization working optimally?

To avoid the negative impacts of any delays, you may decide to proactively have your clinical study processes and procedures reviewed to identify any potential source of dysfunction, to evaluate individual or team performances, or get reassurance that the conduct of the clinical study and the interactions between your clinical team and different parties are optimal.

 

Clinical oversight

Safeguarding your clinical studies

To address resources limitation, ILife Consulting appoints a seasoned clinical project manager to assist with the CRO selection process, coordinate and supervise your clinical trial and provide strategic clinical input on a short, medium or long-term basis. We provide clinical advice and clinical oversight to de-risk the clinical trial execution performed by the selected CRO

Clinical Study Conduct
Study start up

Setting-up your clinical trial for success
Some of the most impactful drivers to the study timeline are the time to obtain regulatory approval, the time to obtain a site’s “green light” to start patient screening and recruitment. Regulatory approval timelines in Europe can be kept in check by providing clear, complete and concise documentation at the time of submission. ILife consulting can mitigate the risk of prolonged approval timelines by ensuring the quality of your submission package.

 Clinical regulatory submissions

The key trigger for the initiation of submission activities is the availability of final core documentation, such as the protocol and Investigators’ Brochure (IB) in Europe, approximately three to four weeks before the initial submissions to the Competent Agencies (CA) and Ethics Committee (EC) or the approval of the Investigational New Drug (IND) application in the USA. ILife Consulting will prepare a customized submission plan including a list of required documentation as well as define responsibilities and detailed timelines.

In Europe, ILife Consulting Clinical Project Manager will perform the CA and EC submissions until approval is granted. Our Clinical Project Manager will:

  • Be the primary regulatory point of contact

  • Develop and manage the submission plan

  • Compile the core submission package

  • Track the submission status and follow-up until approval

  • Coordinate the compilation of query reply documents

Project Management
Risk management assessment

De-risking your trial to save time and generate clinical data of value
Risk-adapted quality management assessment is a continuous process which spans throughout the entire clinical study. As part of our project management and through an agreed Communication Plan, ILife Consulting’s project team will perform an initial risk assessment to identify potential risks based on the protocol, project scope, and study-specific details. In addition, a Mitigation Plan is put in place for each identified risk. Risks and issues are proactively anticipated and reviewed as part of the regular external and internal team meetings.

Vendor management

Power in like-minded partners
As part of a continuous improvement process, ILife Consulting is always keen on establishing new partnerships with like-minded service providers that will offer similar benefits to our clients and agility through size. ILife Consulting has established partnerships with data management, statistics, vigilance service providers, niche CROs in selected countries and a global, exemplary, Oncology clinical trial sites network.
We manage, but usually do not contract third-party providers for eSolutions (eCRF, eDiary / eCOA, IRT and eTMF), clinical trial supplies and operational supplies to de-risk your outsourcing strategy. Every vendor is carefully evaluated before selection and regularly assessed.
