Data Exchange and Confidentiality Between CROs and Sponsors

Data exchange is a part of the much broader issue of confidentiality when contracting R&D services.  In reality, regardless of the geographic region to where services are implemented, the moment work is sent outside of the home office, confidentiality is potentially compromised.
DEL BioPharma LLC works with many clients some of whom are tolerant to perceived risk and some of whom are so concerned that they will not outsource to Asia or India.  From a practical point of view and regardless of the geographic region utilized for contract services, CROs and CMOs would not be in business if there were significant violations of confidentiality.  That having been said, sponsor companies should always take steps to minimize any risk to their programs.  Such steps, applied to chemistry research and development, include the following:
  • For medicinal chemistry, contract labs used for the preparation of target compounds should be separate and distinct from contract labs used for the assay of target compounds.  The rationale behind this strategy lies in the fact that a CRO generating target compounds does not need to know what the target compounds are used for.  Similarly, contract labs providing assay services do not require the structural identity of compounds under evaluation.
  • For API manufacturing, separate contract labs should be used for the regulatory starting materials and for the final drug substance.  The rationale behind this strategy lies in the fact that the manufacturer of the regulatory starting materials does not require knowledge of the final drug substance.  Similarly, the manufacturer of the drug substance does not require knowledge of the process utilized for production of the regulatory starting materials.
In all instances, effective communication of sensitive information (batch records, analytical data/methods, patent applications, regulatory documents, etc.) is required in order to facilitate tech transfer, troubleshooting and overall project advancement.  Aside from the fact that much documentation is so large that email transmission is ineffective, unless encrypted, there is some risk associated with email.  As an alternative, there are many options for encrypted cloud-based data transfer.  Unless an alternate platform is required by a given client, DEL BioPharma LLC uses ShareVault as a secure and encrypted platform for all document transfer between client companies and contracted laboratories.
In summary, there are many effective strategies and platforms for risk reduction associated with data exchange.  The approaches described above are very effective in maintaining security and confidentiality in our current globalized pharmaceutical research and development industry.

  3. How Lemeridian funding service  grant me a loan!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm Lea Paige Matteo from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to lemeridian funding service for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, I was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, I was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to Le_meridian funding service and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Lisa, I was also granted a loan of $216,000.00 So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 1.9% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact Le_meridian funding service. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, I'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.

  4. My name is hoover, my 18 year old daughter, Tricia was diagnosed with herpes 3 years ago. Since then, we have moved from one hospital to another. We tried all kinds of pills, but every effort to get rid of the virus was futile. The bubbles continued to reappear after a few months. My daughter was using 200mg acyclovir pills. 2 tablets every 6 hours and 15g of fusitin cream. and H5 POT. Permanganate with water to be applied twice a day, but all still do not show results. So, I was on the internet a few months ago, to look for other ways to save my only son. Only then did I come across a comment about the herbal treatment of Dr Imoloa and decided to give it a try. I contacted him and he prepared some herbs and sent them, along with guidance on how to use them via the DHL courier service. my daughter used it as directed by dr imoloa and in less than 14 days, my daughter recovered her health.
