    Clinical Logistics Drivers and Constraints


    • Stringent Regulatory Environment: FDA and other regulatory authorities have increased stringency of quality, storage, packaging and labeling, distribution, and recall of ancillary products. Companies now source ancillary products at different levels, like central sourcing and regional sourcing.

    • Globalization of Clinical Trials: Due to globalization of clinical trials, pharma companies are conducting clinical trials, especially phase III clinical trials in distinct geographies, including the fast-growing Eastern Europe, China, Korea, and Taiwan. This has led to increase in planning and sourcing ancillary materials

    • R&D Investments: Increase in R&D investments and government support increased the scope to conduct more research


    • High Waste and Overage: Clinical trials are experiencing a very high level, approximately 150–200 percent of clinical supply waste leads to unwanted cost escalation and high inventory. This impacts the use of internal resources within pharma and biotech companies

    • Interactive Response Technology: Regulatory environment in many countries is very dynamic for some time and change comes very fast. This, along with a high initial cost for installing IRT, proves to be an obstacle in the path of integrating Clinical Ancillaries with Interactive Response Technology (IRT) and most of the work is done on manual basis using excel sheets
