Biorasi Meets First Patient, First Visit Milestone for Dermatology Trial During COVID-19

Miami, FL (July 10, 2020) – Biorasi, a leading global full-service contract research organization (CRO), has met the First Patient, First Visit milestone for a dermatology trial across multiple sites during the COVID-19 pandemic. The trial, focused on treatment for pruritus, spans about 50 clinical sites throughout the United States.

“Ninety-three percent of our ongoing clinical trials are hitting their important milestones,” said Chris O’Brien, CEO of Biorasi. “It is a testament to our Operations Team’s dedication to site communication and proactive solutions that keeps our trials running on time.”

Understanding Decentralized Solutions

Biorasi was able to meet the First Patient, First Visit milestone for the dermatology trial by working closely with the identified sites during quarantine, ensuring patient and clinical staff safety protocols were ready for upcoming site activation. Additionally, by leveraging decentralized solutions – ranging from remote SSV and SIV to the use eSourcing technologies – Biorasi will be able to streamline upcoming aspects of the trial and continue to remain on schedule.

“As clinical trial sponsors become more familiar with the opportunities and limitations made real by COVID-19, more and more studies will begin to reactivate and move forward,” notes O’Brien. “As a leader in the CRO industry, Biorasi relies on its three pillars of success – the right team, the right technology, and the right processes – to engage with our partners and keep trials on track over the long term.”
