Clinical trials are research studies that discover whether a medical treatment, strategy, or device is effective and safe for humans. There are four stages of clinical trials: phase Ι, phase ΙΙ, phase ΙΙΙ, and phase ΙV. Identification of pharmacological actions and tolerability is done in phase I. Phase ΙΙ evaluates drug safety and efficacy. Phase III involves the evaluation of risk benefit ratio and determination of dosage interval. Epidemiological data, efficacy, and safety within large diverse populations and pharmacoeconomics are identified in phase IV.
Clinical trials are complex activities that require synchronization of several different functions and processes. A pharmaceutical manufacturer’s primary goal in any clinical study is to optimize clinical trial supplies so that packaged investigational materials are distributed to patients enrolled in a clinical trial on time. These activities include, but are not limited to, project management, clinical packaging, randomization generation, labeling, supply chain logistics, blinding, distribution, return drug accountability, and destruction.
