Supply Chain Management (SCM) for Global Clinical Trials
From small molecules with hardy stability profiles to temperature and light sensitive biologics, from patient specific drug kits to versatile supplies spanning protocols and indications, from single country studies to global mega-trials; as clinical studies have evolved so has the role of Supply Chain Managers. Supply Chain Management has grown into a highly specialised collection of pharmaceutical professionals who are involved in the conduct of clinical studies.
Clinical trials are becoming increasingly complex in design, often including double or triple the primary end-points we would have seen just a decade ago. The numbers of participating countries is on the rise as competitive enrolment and the search for naïve subjects is taking us into new regions. In addition, Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP) have become more sophisticated and specialised, increasing manufacturing costs and timelines, while reducing available drug supply.
