Domaines of intervention

Scope of Work

ICRA has the capability to manage all clinical trial phases from I to IV with the highest possible professionalism.

ICRA areas of therapeutic expertise include mainly: Infectious Diseases, Vaccines, Haematology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Endocrinology, Dermatology, Inflammatory diseases, Ophthalmology, Rheumatology etc.


Feasibility assessment

ICRA has an important database of investigators from targeted specializations that enable fast, honest and objective feasibility assessment. Every thing is put in place to shorten site selection process that is very often requested by sponsor in emergent contexts.

Site selection

The selection of the best investigational sites is key factor in the success of clinical trials. All efforts are made to use objective indicators that will minimize assessment errors. The following key elements are rigorously checked:

  • Expertise and experience of the Principal Investigators (PI) and the staff;
  • Qualification and training of the staff in required domains;
  • Availability of the staff even well qualified and trained;
  • Availability of the potential PI to oversee studies even well qualified and trained staff;
  • Infrastructures and equipment;
  • Quality Management system including quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC);
  • Potential of recruitment with clear recruitment plan;
  • Potential risk of competition in recruitment and staff workload;

Site development

We have the capability to accompany research institutions or clinical sites that plan to be developed to meet standards for running clinical trials.

Clinical monitoring

  1. Per ICH GCP definition, the clinical monitoring is “the act of overseeing the progress of a clinical trial, and of ensuring that it is conducted, recorded, and reported in accordance with the protocol, standard operating procedures (SOPs), GCP, and the applicable regulatory requirements” E6 1.38
  2. Our CRA are qualified, appropriately trained and well mentored to go beyond the expectations of the sponsor normally put in an approved Monitoring Plan (MP). For all monitoring activities, CRAs always comply with standards of ICH/GCP and local applicable regulations.
  3. ICRA will perform for you with the highest possible quality the following monitoring activities:
    • Site pre-study visits;
    • Site Initiation visits;
    • On-site and/or remote Interim monitoring visits;
    • Site Close Out visits;
    • Site visits for preparation to audit and inspection.
  4. Our CRAs strive to check where applicable these main aspects:
    • The rights, the safety and well-being of human subjects are protected because are the most important considerations and should prevail over interests of science and society;
    • The conduct of the trial is in compliance with the currently approved protocol/amendment (s), with GCP, with applicable regulatory requirements and with SOPs;
    • The approved version number/date of informed consent form is used and signed correctly;
    • All essential documents are filled;
    • The reported trial data are accurate, complete and verifiable from source documents (SDV);
    • The adverse events and concomitant medications are adequately and timely reported;
    • The requested lab samples are properly collected, handled, tested and stored;
    • The investigational products are appropriately received, stored, dispensed with a reconciled accountability.
  5. We will honestly and appropriately report to the sponsor, all performed activities in the agreed timelines put in the Monitoring Plan. All findings are rigorously followed-up until resolution and a concerted plan to avoid re-occurrences is always put in place.

  • Develop and maintain timelines and resources;
  • Develop and maintain study deliverables and milestones;
  • Communicate closely and sincerely with sponsors and key study support stakeholders to install durable trust;
  • Organize periodic project management committee meetings;
  • Assess and Manage the risks;
  • Plan the resolution of emergent issues;
  • Supervise the entirety of activities and execution of related budget.
