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 an Endpoint Adjudication Committee, you can achieve quality clinical trial outcomes and reduce inconsistencies or bias in clinical trial data.

Ensure the quality of your clinical trial

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.

When you need thorough insights, turn to a network of 1,000+ global experts

Our Endpoint Adjudication Committees are run by a dedicated team of more than 1,000 medical, statistical, and safety experts who serve as advisors to clinical trial sponsors, academic experts and regulatory agencies. Their main objective is to reduce the variation in important clinical trial events and ultimately mitigate risk and enhance patient safety in clinical trials.

Sponsors who tap into WCG’s network committee:

  • Achieve consistent, global data collection
  • Catch safety issues early on
  • Assess risk with event findings
  • Bolster regulatory strategy prior to submission
  • Gain expanded labeling
  • Drive increased adoption through publication support
  • Gain a competitive advantage over other products
