Running a clinical supply operation is akin to operating a full-scale pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. The two main differences are clinical supplies are on a smaller scale and typically the steps are conducted only once. Correct labeling of clinical supplies is more complex than one would expect. The type of study, study site locations, GMP/ICH regulations, internal approvals, type and size of the primary package, secondary packaging availability, and local regulations can adversely affect one’s ability to complete the labeling process in a timely manner. Auxiliary labeling, such as patient inserts or investigator instruction sheets are also included in the clinical supply labeling process.
A well-run Clinical Supply operation will make the entire process look easy and flawless. The coordination of the packaging and labeling of supplies can aid in the smooth initiation of the clinical trials.

The entire gamut of the clinical supply process can be daunting to a novice, and at times, even to the seasoned professional, faced with the need to get investigational drugs to an investigator and ultimately to the patients who will be involved in the clinical trial. Faced with the task, one would begin to ask, "How do I go about getting the job done?" "Where do I start?" "What are the regulations involved?" "What are my options?"
Regardless of the size of the company you represent, if you are involved in the clinical supply process in any manner, you need to be versed in the A-B-Cs of clinical packaging, both the types of packaging best suited for the clinical trial as well as the process of filling and GMP documentation required. This is a basic step in the clinical supply process and its completion can affect the project timeline.
