Clinilabs Launches Research Volunteer Authentication Initiative Choosing Verified Clinical Trials to Stop Dual Enrollment in Clinical Trials

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

Clinilabs, an early phase and specialty CRO that provides clinical drug development services to industry, today announced that it has launched a subject authentication initiative at its Phase 1 sites in New York and New Jersey. This initiative includes the authentication of subject identity and medical history, background checks, and tracking of prior study participation in order to eliminate ineligible subjects from clinical trials. The Company has selected Verified Clinical Trials (VCT) to assist with this initiative, implementing the VCT clinical trials database registry system. VCT’s registry is designed to stop the professional research subjec t from enrolling in multiple clinical trials simultaneously – a situation known as dual enrollment. This collaboration between Clinilabs and VCT is a reflection of both companies’ commitment to volunteer safety and data quality.

Failure to document the identity of study volunteers, inaccuracies in subjects’ medical histories, and multiple concurrent enrollments have become a serious problem in the clinical research world. Study volunteers interested in free care or compensation may present inaccurate information in order to gain entry to clinical trials, and some may jump from one study to another without waiting for enough time to lapse between treatments. This type of research volunteer places everyone at risk including the drug manufacturer, the research site, and most importantly, themselves, potentially jeopardizing their health. Furthermore, this may compromise data quality.

Clinilabs and Verified Clinical Trials are determined to meet the challenge of subject enrollment in a proactive way, ensuring that only eligible subjects are enrolled in clinical trials. Dr. Gary Zammit, President and CEO states, "Most of us in the industry recognize the existence and the significant ramifications of improper enrollment in clinical trials, but we have never before been able to quantify it, detect it, or stop it. Clinilabs has taken the lead among CROs to provide its clients with a thoughtfully-conceived approach to subject authentication – ensuring the accuracy and integrity of volunteer data."

Dr. Mitchell Efros, CEO of Verified Clinical Trials states, "Clinilabs has joined an impressive cohort of companies on a local and national level to improve the quality of their trials. The recognition of dual enrollment in clinical research and use of the VCT system has literally exploded as of late". Dr. Efros adds, "We are very excited to have a company like Clinilabs join our expansive network that includes and focuses on both early and late phase trials. Clinilabs has joined the largest clinical research database network across North America and only strengthens this cooperative registry."
