Challenges and Solutions

  • Clinical trial data submission to the FDA and its approval is often a long, tiresome and sometimes challenging task. Any discrepancy or issues can straight away lead to rejection. Novartis reached out to us to facilitate hassle-free and quick trial data approval of its new drug for Myelogenous Leukemia, Gleevec or Imatinib.
  • The FDA, as part of its review of clinical trial data, needs the organization to answer certain queries and questions. We assisted Novartis in the submission of appropriate responses with our top-notch post-hoc analysis.
  • An accurately developed CSR is vital in the overall drug approval process. We also aided Novartis in developing FDA-compliant, submission-ready Clinical Study Reports for the drug in question.

Challenges and Solutions

  • Roche collaborated with KnowTechInfo for its revolutionary drug Polivy which was designed to fight B-cell Lymphoma. Since clinical trial data submission is a crucial and complicated task, we assisted Roche in trial data submission to FDA for Polivy.
  • During clinical trial data submission, the FDA puts forward multiple questions and queries as part of the scrutiny. KnowTechInfo, through its post-hoc analysis, aided in those queries. This was instrumental in faster approval.
  • We carefully developed and validated FDA-compliant and acceptable Clinical Study Reports for the Lymphoma drug. A submission-ready and fully-documented CSR is crucial for drug approval. It summarizes the overall outcome of a clinical study to the FDA.
