Clinical Trials and Surveys Corp (C-TASC), a clinical trials solutions company, hired three new biostatisticians and plans to double its staff in the next year. The company, which currently employs 35 people, plans to increase to 60 employees by February 2010 in order to keep up with increased demand for its clinical trial services and technologies.
Clinical Trials & Surveys Corp (C-TASC), a clinical trials solutions company, will assist the U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Centers for Quality Assurance and Biostatistics to develop new methods and procedures for evaluating all New Drug Applications submitted for FDA approval. Under the $5.5 million base contract, C-TASC will use components of its StudyCTMS study management software application to customize a solution for the FDA that will standardize how clinical trial data for new therapies will be presented and reviewed. C-TASC statisticians will also work with FDA staff to perform some of the data preparations and analyses for these reviews. StudyCTMS is C-TASC’s proprietary web-based data management solution that enables clinical trials managers to easily develop and manage clinical studies and deliver the accumulated data and metadata in an easy-to-read and FDA-acceptable format.
