Dear Osama,

» I have already dealt with such study conducted for an anti-cancer drug in different CRO's in different cities.

Well, I've seen a few too, and all used a single, central bioanalytical lab...

It is true that it requires some logistics: local processing and storage of the samples, delivery of dry ice, pick-up of the samples by specialised transporters etc. All this does have a cost. On the other hand, you save on the development and validation of a bioanalytical method at each local laboratory. Plus the audit of each lab and QC of what they do. And an increased variability means a loss of power, thus additional patients needed.

CROs involved in this type of studies usually have a network of clinical sites with which they are used to working. They take care of all the logistics. If not: find another... It's worth it.

Regards
Ohlbe

On two occasions I have been asked,—“Pray, Mr. Babbage,
if you put into the machine wrong figures,…
will the right answers come out?”

I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas
that could provoke such a question.    Charles Babbage
