What to Expect When Conducting a Clinical Trial for a Dietary Supplement, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Xtalks Life Science Webinars

Join the live session on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, with Josh Baisley, Director of Clinical Trials at Nutrasource, as he explores the clinical trial timeline from start to finish to help companies considering a trial understand the process and requirements.

Successfully running a clinical trial of a dietary supplement or nutraceutical from beginning to end can be a daunting task. It takes leadership, good communication, and committed teams to ensure a clinical program is executed in a timely manner and to a high degree of quality.

To achieve project goals, it is important to communicate expectations during the initial stages and foster a partnership throughout the trial. There are always risks that must be managed along the way. Understanding what risks may arise and timing of those risks is key to taking a proactive approach to managing a clinical trial. Being prepared for the unexpected provides a pathway to success.

Once a contract is signed to begin a new clinical trial, there are several key milestones along the way. These include: regulatory and/or ethics approval, site initiation, first subject first visits, the last subject enrolled, last subject last visit, database lock, results review, and final report. Study start-up — the time when the protocol, consent form, investigators brochure, and regulatory and ethics submissions are written and compiled — is a labour-intensive component of a clinical trial. Time spent planning during this period can prevent changes and delays after study launch.

The webinar will help address common questions such as what happens when things go wrong and what options are available to overcome problems. Discussion points include:

-         The clinical trial timeline

-         Factors affecting timelines and milestones

-         How to prepare for and overcome common barriers

-         How to effectively collaborate with your research partner
