Richmond Pharmacology continually evaluates the processes we undertake and examine whether they deliver maximum value to trial sponsors while not compromising quality or patient safety.

One of the ways we do this is through the use of adaptive trial protocols which enables the safe modification of a trial’s course in accordance with pre-specified rules in the protocol. Modifications may include for example, the need to change the patient sample size, review the data collected and evaluate which groups of patients are responding.

One of the reasons why the UK is an outstanding location to deliver clinical studies is that the regulator - the MHRA - embrace and support the use of adaptive trial protocols. This allows Contract Research Organisation’s such as us the ability to operate more flexibly and to take decisions faster; ensuring that trials can reach their end points sooner and the most promising therapeutics move to the next stage more quickly.
