  • Pharma Sponsor Enlists Cenduit IRT To Rescue A Multi-Country, Multi-Site Oncology Study

    After go-live, the sponsor learned its study did not fit the existing IRT solution, affecting data quality, timelines, and drug supply shipments. The legacy system’s medication management algorithm could not support the required flexibility in the supply chain. The trial included an adaptive cohort design. Read how Cenduit delivered a high-quality study achieved through innovation, close client collaboration, and expert project management.

  • Focus On Polyimides For Medical Applications

    Polyimides (PIs) occupy a particular place in commercial plastics because of their ability to tolerate and function in extremely high temperatures. This white paper discusses PI properties, their structure, and how they are synthesized for use in extreme environment applications.

  • Photodiode Characteristics And Applications

    Silicon photodiodes operate by absorption of photons or charged particles and generate a flow of current in an external circuit, proportional to the incident power. They are used in diverse applications including spectroscopy, beam alignment, optical communications, and medical imaging.

  • Making AI Usable For Pharma and Biopharma

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is already making a huge contribution to the global economy, even though this development is still in its early stages. AI is a kind of turbo drive for the new digital technologies, because it enables machines to imitate human decision-making processes. This white paper explores how to use artificial intelligence to uncover hidden business value in the regulated pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

  • Phase III Rare Disease Rescue

    A small biotech with limited internal capacity outsourced a phase III clinical program in patients with Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections. After nearly 16 months, patient enrollment was still a major challenge, the study was over budget and CRO staff turnover on the project was extremely high.
