Exploring Common CDISC ADaM Conformance Findings

September 16, 2020

In the regulatory review process, it's critical to have analysis data that comply with the CDISC ADaM standard. Both the FDA and PMDA require ADaM data, and as they begin reviews, they start with ADaM data validation. ADaM data help these agencies understand the analyses performed and reproduce the results for further validation.

In this webinar, Trevor Mankus covers the more commonly occurring validation rules and some potential reasons why they fired.

Best Practices for Annotated CRFs

August 4, 2020

The SDTM annotated CRF (aCRF) is a cumbersome submission document to create. It's also highly important. It visually documents how data are mapped from the CRF to SDTM. Because this is mostly a manual task, it is key to know what makes a high-quality aCRF.

In this webinar, Amy Garrett reviews published guidance from regulatory agencies and provides best practices for CRF annotations. These practices ensure your aCRF meets current regulatory requirements and the needs of internal users.

New Pinnacle 21 Enterprise 4.0 Eases Concern about PMDA Submissions

April 2, 2019

Released March 31, the new P21 Enterprise 4.0 provides more options for submitting study data to the Japanese health authority PMDA, plus better ways to manage validation issues and reports, as well as new validation rules and support for STDMIG 3.3.

P21 Enterprise 4.0 addresses concerns raised by our customers who submit data to both FDA and PMDA. Historically, regulators at the two agencies have embraced clinical data standards and conformance rules at different rates and degrees of severity.

Running data validations for PMDA has required a separate compliance strategy, plus extra time for validation and regulatory submission. Too often, sponsors worry that PMDA submission packages will fall short of reviewer expectations.

December 17, 2016, is less than five months away.

As we all know by now, studies starting on or after that date must be submitted to the Food & Drug Administration electronically. They must also utilize the most-recent FDA-acknowledged version of data standards.

To support the latter point, FDA is requesting that sponsors submit a Study Data Standardization Plan (SDSP) as part of the IND application.

With time running out quickly, two big questions have taken on a new urgency:
