Clinical ancillary management – tackling the complexities of a global diabetes trial

Case study

A large manufacturer needed support for their global diabetes trials. The scope of a single trial often included as many as 1,500 to 2,000 patients in 15 to 20 countries across all geographic regions (US, EU, Asia, Middle East). The geographic reach of the trial and the number of items that had to be sourced required working with 3 to 5 suppliers and an average of 15 to 25 manufacturers. Read this case study to learn how Thermo Fisher Scientific was able to provide the needed support by: – Identifying the required supplies – Calculating demand – Developing a sourcing strategy – Providing access to regionalized and local storage facilities – Ongoing operational execution and oversight
