Clinical Trial Monitoring

The majority of the Clinical Research Associates (CRAs or monitors) at our company are MDs. By utilizing medical doctors, the overview of medical charts and the rapport with investigators is of the highest quality, thereby assuring our clients that the patients included in the research trial are enrolled appropriately and their safety and well-being is given the utmost importance. Consequently safety and data validity are ensured. The CRAs manage their sites including training site staff on protocol requirements and verifying that the clinical trial is conducted under Good Clinical Practice (GCP). CRAs conduct initiation, routine monitoring and close out visits to all sites involved in a study. All research conducted by the Russian investigators are under ICH (International Code of Harmonization) and GCP standards thereby assuring excellent data quality. In sum, our monitoring includes:

  • Site Selection and Qualification in accordance with Protocol and ICH GCP requirements
  • Site Initiation
  • Routine site Monitoring per Monitoring Plan and Sponsor Expectation to provide high Quality of data retrieved
  • Tracking of Query resolution process
  • Site management
  • Study logistics management
  • Study Close-out

In addition, we oversee:

  • Study drug and non-drug supplies logistics
  • Tracking regulatory document revisions
  • Tracking protocol deviations/violations
  • Tracking subject progression

Clinical Trial Management

IPHARMA, ChemDiv’s clinical division, can manage all aspects of a clinical trial in Russia. When a sponsor company is considering enrolling patients in Russia, our Medical Department can conduct a complimentary feasibility assessment to determine estimated enrollment numbers and timelines.
If needed, we can craft a study protocol for review, approval, and finalization. Once a study is awarded to ChemDiv, our study team can begin amassing documents for the regulatory dossier to be submitted to the Ministry of Health. We track all aspects of study progression and communicate this information to our clients.


  • Our study teams consist of Project Managers (PMs), responsible for all aspects of the study, who act as primary contacts to the sponsor company (and internally)
  • Our PMs oversee our teams of Clinical Research Associates (CRAs), and work closely with our medical team
  • Depending on the needs of the sponsor, our PMs can also manage vendors
  • Upon study award, we devise monitoring and communication plans and contact lists
  • Our clinical and medical team works closely with the sites to ensure that all staff are trained extremely carefully
  • We work closely with our clients to ensure that the information that is most helpful to them is provided in a timely fashion; and do everything possible to ensure that data are of the highest quality
