Tools for Clinical Trials Professionals

Web-based tracking and reporting tool removes the guesswork from trial management

Northrop Grumman (Chantilly, VA) has introduced Global Trials Manager (GTM) for anyone who has been involved with a study that could have ended months earlier if only they had known the direction the results would ultimately take. This Web-based application is designed to help life sciences companies better manage and shorten the life cycles of clinical trials.

Global Trials Manager

GTM supports real-time tracking and reporting through a personalized site. This allows the processing of information to lead to faster decision making, improved project quality, and quicker time to market. From start-up activities to patient enrollment to the analysis of project metrics and results, GTM lets clinical trial professionals automatically respond to key data.

With GTM, Northrop offers an integrated planning and monitoring environment encompassing all aspects of a clinical trial. The software platform allows for tracking of data and project management plans detailing monthly progress as well as patient details, patient procedures, and patient-reported adverse events.

New authoring release frees up even more time to tackle the meat of regulatory submissions

Given FDA's focus on eCTD submissions, Octagon Research Solutions, Inc. (Wayne, PA) saw an opportunity to enhance its authoring product with some added features. The company has released a new version of its StartingPoint authoring software that takes away even more of the burden of document formatting, allowing authors to focus on the critical content of regulatory submissions.

StartingPoint, version 2.0

The StartingPoint 2.0 package contains nearly 200 authoring templates spanning all five CTD modules, test scripts for clients to use when validating StartingPoint within their environments, a comprehensive user guide, and a style guide.

StartingPoint 2.0 features support for auto-numbered heading styles and quick-access buttons for commonly used tasks like adding captions, cross-references, and additional symbols. Also, Octagon has added a toolbar button to this version of StartingPoint that keeps unsupported or error-prone styles from corrupting the document.
