URL How can Med-ic® help with the phase 2 go/no go decision? December 18 2014
Med-ic is a medication event monitoring system in the form of a smart blister package. As an add-on to a phase 2 clinical trial, Med-ic-generated data can be highly effective in the post-hoc analyses leading up to the go/no go decision regarding a move to phase 3. Once the phase 2 objectives of establishing safety and tolerability, determining dose range, and possibly noting early signs of efficacy have been achieved, a decision to move to phase 3 involves the commitment of considerable resources.

URL New Electronic Compliance Monitoring Blister Pack June 13 2013
The new Ecoslide-RX® with integrated Med-ic® technology made its debut April 21 at the 2013 Global Clinical Supplies Conference in New Mexico. The package is senior friendly and child-resistant (F=1). Ideal for clinical trials where dosing data should be precisely recorded, Ecoslide-RX with Med-ic incorporates an electronic module and printed sensor grid inside the package, both of which are invisible to the patient. The hidden technology records the time, date and location when a dose is removed from the blister package.

URL Reinventing the phases of clinical trials November 29 2012
Traditional clinical trials, in which a protocol is designed according to certain assumptions and strictly followed throughout the study, have numerous inefficiencies. Because there is no opportunity for researchers to adapt a protocol to reflect their increasing understanding of a drug as a trial progresses, the outcome may be inconclusive if the initial assumptions prove incorrect. The concept of reinventing the phases of clinical trials by certain adaptations made to the trial and/or statistical procedures of on-going clinical trials based on accrued data have been in practice for years in clinical research and development, thereby revolutionizing the way clinical research is being conducted.

URL Examination of Registered Clinical Trials Suggests Weakness in Size and Methodology of Many Studies May 07 2012
