Endpoint Adjudication

Achieve quality clinical trial outcomes with an expert Endpoint Adjudication Committee

There is a growing trend across a wide variety of therapeutic areas and medical device studies to adjudicate critical endpoints, outcome events, and even inclusion/exclusion criteria that determines whether patients are eligible for a specific study. That’s why, with a clinical, expert review, you can achieve quality clinical trial outcomes and reduce inconsistencies or bias in clinical trial data.

With WCG’s Endpoint Adjudication Committee (EAC) process, also known as a Clinical Events Committee (CEC), we help the biopharma and device industry to lower the risk of variation in important clinical trial outcome events for submission to regulatory agencies.

Our independent endpoint adjudication process enhances safety and efficacy in:

  • Studies with complex and/or subjective endpoints;
  • Studies which cannot be blinded;
  • Studies with high enrollment or long duration;
  • Studies with global or cultural differences across sites;
  • When the endpoint of interest differs from the therapeutic specialty of the investigator.

Endpoint Adjudication is a critical aspect of a clinical trial as it helps to lower the risk of variation in important clinical trial outcome events for submission to regulatory agencies. From a global perspective, our Endpoint Adjudication service reduces regional variation in outcome reporting and also serves as a quality control check that uses clinical expert review of principal investigator reporting.
