All investigator initiated trials that are regulated by the FDA, require study monitoring. The CTO provides comprehensive study monitoring and auditing services that are based on the latest Risk Based Monitoring guidelines from the FDA. Thus, the service will cut down on the total monitoring volume and therefore the total time spent monitoring of clinical trials while achieving optimum levels of data review to ensure compliance and patient safety.
