In recent years, challenges such as COVID-19 have pushed pharmaceutical companies to find innovative solutions to accelerate their clinical trial timelines. 


Amaury Jeandrain, Head of Business Development Engineering at N-SIDE, discusses in the Arena Clinical Trial Supply Handbook 2022 how an optimal supply chain can positively impact pharmaceutical companies and enable faster clinical trial timelines. 

In this article, Amaury outlines the importance for companies to accelerate their timelines and gives insights into how optimization of the supply chain helps eliminating its bottlenecks.

Waste reduction has been a topic of discussion in pharmaceutical companies for many years and it has been identified has one of the causes of slower clinical trials timelines. However, whereas waste reduction is often coupled with cost reduction, Amaury explains that wasted drugs, when allocated efficiently, can also be enablers of faster timelines .

Supply chain enabling faster clinical trial timelines

"What generates waste is not only the planning, but the constraints that the supply chain must work with." - Amaury Jeandrain

In this article, you can also learn more about:

  • how every aspect of the clinical trial design can impact the supply chain, even the ones that may seem insignifiant;
  • how the right clinical supply chain optimization can help you get to faster timelines and save up to 60% of drug waste;
  • and much more!
