The Safety Management Division of CTCC has years of experience in supporting clinical trials from First-in-Human through Phase IV in many therapeutic areas.

We offer a full spectrum of safety services across all phases of clinical development (consulting, planning, and conduct) for investigator initiated trials (IIT) and industry-sponsored clinical studies (single-center / multicenter / multinational) in all indications. This comprises studies conducted under the German Drug Act (AMG) or as well as the German Medical Devices Act (MPG). A comprehensive quality management system and- a highly qualified professional team ensure highest quality standards and compliance with legal and regulatory obligations. For recording of serious adverse events (SAE), CTCC uses an established ICH-E2B(R3)-based pharmacovigilance data base that enables the management of individual case safety reports along with MedDRA coding and Eudravigilance Gateway in one central system. We ensure strict adherence to national and international regulatory requirements and guidelines, thus offering excellent prerequisites for the performance of clinical trials and for patient safety.

  • Consulting service for planning and conduct of clinical trials with regard to safety management and medical monitoring
  • Preparation and review of study-specific documents, including safety section of study protocol, safety manual, medical monitoring plan, and reporting forms
  • Serious Adverse Event management: receipt, full processing, medical evaluation, data entry in our validated safety data base, MEDRA coding, preparation of the case narrative and CIOMS reporting form
