Optimizing a vaccine trial with the N-SIDE Supply App

Although vaccine trials are far from the first candidates pharmaceutical companies have in mind when thinking about clinical trial supply optimization, there's actually a huge impact to be made there!

We recently collaborated with a biotech partner to optimize a Phase III vaccine trial for a respiratory disease. Thanks to our past work with vaccine trials, we've discovered the characteristics of vaccine trials that lead to high waste levels. They can be put into 4 main categories:

  • Fast recruitment
  • Short screening periods
  • Long shipping lead times
  • Shipment boxes

Thanks to our solutions, our biotech partner was able to test multiple what-if scenarios using a digital twin of their trial and identify the best solutions to reduce waste. The case study details the solutions they implemented to reduce their overage from 500% to 140%.

By quantifying the impact of decisions through technology and analytics, our partner was able to make informed decisions and significantly reduce the drug waste levels of their trial.

Case study

N-SIDE collaborates with AstraZeneca

N-SIDE and AstraZeneca worked together to reduce the waste and cost of this trial while still keeping the patients and their safety at the center of their concerns.

Read the case study to learn what they discovered and see the results they managed to reach. Overall, not only did they manage to reduce both the cost and drug waste levels of this study but some changes helped decrease the risk of missed dispensing for the patients as well.

Innovation that improves clinical supply planning for complex trials

Clinical trial forecasting and planning activities are extremely challenging. This is partly because the rising complexity and frequent changes in protocols lead to a high level of uncertainty in the trials.

Clinical trial supply solutions can simulate the complexities and uncertainties of protocols. They generate accurate demand forecasts and robust supply chain strategies, minimizing waste while ensuring no stockouts
