Good Clinical Practice for veterinary clinical trials
Good clinical practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for trials. This includes trial design, definition of scientifically and ethical trial objectives, oversight of trial activities, data collection, quality assurance and study analysis. These activities are intended to support clinical research, with the aim of improving animal health and animal welfare and advancing animal health science. Royal GD performs these veterinary clinical trials, according to GCP.
In GCP responsibilities are shared by clinical investigators, institutions, institutional review boards, industry sponsors and government regulators. Applying GLP comes with a few challenges, such as defining the roles and responsibilities of those involved and ensuring a dynamic process in which contributions are complementary. We can ensure this dynamic process by combining the different aspects that are needed to conduct clinical trials; from the scientific knowledge of animal diseases to set up a trial design, network with veterinarians and livestock farmers in the field to veterinary laboratory practices, data collection, quality assurance, the analysis of the study and processing the data into a report.
If you are looking for a contract research organization for conducting veterinary clinical trials, GD can offer you all these activities covered by GCP.
