Trials@Home is a publicly funded consortium in which Industry and Academia work together to reshape clinical trial design by investigating, developing and piloting standards and recommendations to decentralise aspects of clinical trials.
RADIAL, a proof-of concept study, is conducted as part of Trials@Home. The project’s consortium partners have worked together for nearly four years in consultation with three advisory bodies (a Patient Expert Panel, an External Stakeholder Platform and a Scientific Advisory Board) and many more external stakeholders to explore the concept of decentralised clinical trial approaches, or DCTs. This collaborative, co-creational process has included an inventory and analysis on technologies and best practice approaches within the DCT field, an exploration of the legal, regulatory, quality, and ethical landscape of DCTs, and consultations with relevant stakeholders including patient representatives and regulatory and ethical bodies. This work has informed the design and operational setup of RADIAL.
The study is seen as important to help to change the way how clinical trials are being conducted in future. The Lancet recently made a video about the future of clinical research. Please check-out the video in which a spot was also reserved for Trials@Home in which Mira Zuidgeest (Sponsor of Radial) speaks about Radial from min 4:23 onwards https://trialsathome.com/the-future-of-medical-research/
