Adaptive Trial Designs

Focused expertise to implement complex innovative study designs


Complex innovative (adaptive) designs require flexible solutions and a world of expertise. Well-designed adaptive trials result in lower drug development costs, reduced timings, faster decisions, and improved patient safety.

As these complex designs often involve new treatments perpetually being introduced throughout the trial, Almac ensures that these common adaptations occur in the IXRS randomisation scheme seamlessly.
