Client Challenge

A clinical co-development company recently signed a co-development agreement with another pharmaceutical to advance the clinical development of one of the largest ongoing clinical trial programs for the treatment of Asthma.

Thanks to the prior positive experience the client had with our team in the past on a CRO selection for their clinical study, they turned to us to guide them throughout the CRO selection of the new clinical trial program, the contract negotiations, as well as on how to best ensure an effective governance and oversight.
