Patient safety is the greatest priority when conducting clinical trials. Our extensively trained medical staff (MDs, RNs, and PAs) work closely with clients, internal teams and investigator sites to ensure strict adherence to all protocols, as well as GCP/ICH guidelines. Our medical safety officers are available to the investigators and investigators sites and the study team, 24 hours a day globally.

Our Medical Affairs team plays an instrumental role in trials of all sizes and varying complexities. Because we have successfully worked on complicated clinical trials, we have the staff, expertise and equipment to handle the most difficult trials.

Medical Monitoring & Consulting services are designed to address each program’s unique requirements including baseline consultations, monitoring and/or further evaluation related to certain medical conditions following exposure to a product or environment. We design and administer each program to fit the specific terms and/or requirements of the parties, ranging from baseline evaluation to additional diagnosis to further procedures or benefits. Extensive monitoring programs can encompass thousands of prospective claimants and hundreds of medical service providers, and may require monitoring and reporting for several years beyond the initial exposure.

Serious Adverse Event (SAE) Data-Capture system is critical for any project. With our Safety Management System, safety data is at your finger tips and is maintained in a tightly controlled, monitored database. Your data will be available for safety personnel to review at any time, world-wide. The system itself is rol- based and allows each client to customize their process flow whether you want the QDS Safety Team or your own to interact with sites and regulatory authorities for the collection and reporting of SAEs.

Our Safety Team is comprised of nurses and physicians with years of clinic and industry related experience. The team uses the Safety Management component to manage all of your safety information needs. Our experienced staff is dedicated to collecting initial information, and all required follow-up information, for complete safety services, while their responsive nature allows for real time-decisions

Clinical trials are prospective biomedical or behavioral research studies on human subjects that are designed to answer specific questions about biomedical or behavioral interventions (novel vaccines, drugs, treatments, functional foods, dietary supplements, devices or new ways of using known interventions), generating safety and efficacy data. They are conducted only after satisfactory information has been gathered that satisfies health authority/ethics committee approval in the country where approval of the therapy is sought.

Depending on product type and development stage, investigators initially enroll volunteers and/or patients into small pilot studies, and subsequently conduct progressively larger scale comparative studies. As positive safety and efficacy data are gathered, the number of patients typically increases. Clinical trials can vary in size, and can involve a single research entity in one country or multiple entities in multiple countries. We provide the following solutions.
