Clinical Trial Patient Adherence “Voice of the Patient” in Clinical Trials

In every clinical trial, the role of the patient is critical. There is a false belief that patients are going to follow the prescription instructions exactly as prescribed.

Consider this:

What happens when study patients “decide” not to take the prescribed study dose? The design of a clinical trial can be flawless, BUT if the patient “decides” not to take study drug correctly, the results of the trial will be significantly flawed.

So much so that the study dose approved by the FDA could be too high and toxic for patients post-launch who are more adherent.

  • If the patient does not understand the study medication instructions and any required record keeping, there is a high probability that the patient will make medication errors and not take the study drug correctly.
  • Patient adherence in the clinical trial should be at the 95% level so that it is always higher than that of very adherent patients post-launch.

Protect your company from unnecessary patient deaths and lawsuits by ensuring that study patients are at least 95% adherent.

Unfortunately, unexpected post-marketing toxicities that are occurring many years after FDA approval  may not be due to the drug at all – – but due to poor patient education & undetected poor patient adherence in the clinical trial.

– how flawless the study design is

– how well patient adherence is monitored

– how strong the data analytics are

We are measuring suboptimal adherence

These errors can have a severe negative impact on the clinical trial results… including approval of a toxic  dosage leading to unexpected post-marketing dilemmas if patients in the general population are more adherent than those in the clinical trials. Read More
