Data Monitoring Committee Services

 

Experience counts

Ensuring patient safety and assuring study merit and integrity through the independent evaluation of interim clinical data is vitally important for increasingly complex development programs.

Axio has supported clients in the planning and management of more than 200 Data Monitoring Committees in all major therapeutic areas—making us one of the foremost companies in this field. Our staff members are highly trained to serve as independent statisticians for DMCs, and we apply this expertise and deep DMC experience to provide turnkey solutions for monitoring patient safety and ensuring trial integrity.

Our approach is to coordinate and manage DMC projects to fit the specific requirements of every clinical study and to serve as client liaison to the DMC—providing either a selection or the full complement of support services needed to facilitate efficient DMC operation.

In addition, to promote optimum review of our clients’ interim study data by their DMCs, we have developed a distinctively user-friendly, easily referenced report format and other innovations that ensure the clear presentation of data.
