WorldCare will discuss how its Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) process brings consistency to endpoint adjudication for clinical trials
Boston, MA, May 1, 2015 – WorldCare Clinical (WCC), one of the world’s leading imaging CROs focused on maximizing the precision and accuracy of independent endpoint assessments in clinical trials, today announced that WCC President Dr. Rick Walovitch will present "Adjudicating Endpoints - The Case for a Blinded Independent Central Review" at the Endpoint Adjudication Conference in Philadelphia on May 5, 2015.
"Safety and efficacy endpoint assessment is a natural evolution of our imaging services," stated Aaron Timm, CEO of WCC. "For example, Oncology trials often require independent assessments by radiologists, pathologists and oncologists. We understand how to efficiently couple imaging data with clinical data in a digital process that allows for multiple independent assessment teams. We believe our endpoint assessment offering minimizes interpretation variability which can enable sponsors to maximize their chances of regulatory success. We look forward to sharing our insights at the Endpoint Adjudication Conference."
In order to maximize the precision and accuracy of data interpretation, WCC uniformly trains the subspecialty-trained, board-certified experts who perform all of WCC’s adjudication assessments. For more than 20 years, WCC has managed endpoint assessment committees, including adjudication of both imaging and non-imaging endpoints. WCC offers multiple standing safety committees as well as efficacy adjudication for all clinical subspecialties.
