These core activities can be stand-alone or combined with any clinical program. Clinquest’s trained Pharmacovigilance professionals can be located in-house or on-site at the client location.

Clinquest can also provide clinical trial medical monitoring (including protocol deviation follow-up and review, clinical laboratory review, SAE/SADE case review, and medical coding oversight), 1571 responsibility, safety review and sign-off on final study reports, and participation in or management of Data Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMB).
