SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2011) - Nextrials, Inc. (www.nextrials.com), a leader in clinical research software and services, today announced that its new Prism® database design tools have been shown to significantly lower costs and to reduce clinical trial start times by as much as 50 percent. Atlanta-based IND 2 Results (I2R), a contract research organization offering drug development consultation and clinical trial management services, not only found that the Prism design tools helped shorten the time to build a database, they also facilitated subsequent validation and documentation.
"This is especially good news for Phase I and small study sponsors, particularly those looking to maximize their limited financial resources," noted Amy Morris, CEO of I2R. "Prism's design tools provide access to a cost-effective electronic data capture system that delivers real-time data to companies and facilitates much faster decision making around drug safety, dose strengths and, ultimately, efficacy."
Nextrials integrated Prism with Formedix's industry-leading Origin™ products so that users could easily build customized clinical trial databases in just a few mouse clicks. The built-in design tools include automatically generated database specifications and submission-ready CRFs that can be compiled to create large libraries of forms. Sponsors and CROs such as I2R can then utilize the library from study to study, reducing design and start times so that clinical trials can be initiated in a matter of days instead of weeks or months.
This week, Nextrials is showcasing Prism at the 2011 Annual Conference of the Society of Clinical Data Management, being held September 11-14 in Baltimore, MD. Visitors can see a demonstration of Prism in the Nextrials' booth (Booth #315).
Nextrials' award-winning Prism melds sophisticated clinical trial management functionality with EDC in a single, integrated package. By receiving a constant flow of data, Prism enables sponsors and sites to fully utilize real-time integration of disparate information and data sources, such as a hospital's EHR or patient records, to better provide a continuum of care for patients enrolled in clinical trials.
