Orphan Reach Speeds COVID-19 Study with TI

Orphan Reach Expedites Phase II COVID-19 Study with TransPerfect's Trial Interactive eTMF and Remote Monitoring Solution

NEW YORK, May 28, 2020 – TransPerfect Life Sciences, a leading provider of technologies and services to support clinical trials and product development for the biopharmaceutical industry, today announced that Orphan Reach selected TransPerfect’s Trial Interactive cloud-based platform for remote site monitoring, eTMF, and mobile eTMF in support of a phase II COVID-19 study that received rapid MHRA start-up approval.

Orphan Reach is based in the United Kingdom and is a full-service CRO focused on accelerating global clinical development for rare diseases. They tailor their approach to supporting clinical research in small patient populations, developing orphan drugs, and working in areas of high unmet medical need. Due to the urgent demand to expedite processes to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, Orphan Reach needed to launch their eTMF and remote monitoring solutions as quickly as possible.

Trial Interactive was selected for its fast implementation and track record of successful regulatory inspections and approvals. They are using the remote site monitoring room to enable 21 CFR Part 11 compliant source document verification and management. In addition to using the platform’s eTMF solution, Orphan Reach has implemented myTI, TransPerfect’s mobile eTMF app, to allow site personnel to upload documents in real time from anywhere in the world. Additionally, CRAs can perform remote reconciliation. TransPerfect recently announced that remote site monitoring functionality would be offered at no charge for organizations conducting COVID-19 studies.

“We were up and running in two weeks with Trial Interactive. This also coincided with a 48-hour MHRA approval after final protocol submission,” said Thomas Ogorka, Orphan Reach Founder and CEO. “Our CRO/Sponsor team and partnership with Trial Interactive made it possible to expedite this critical, time-sensitive research.”

TransPerfect President and CEO Phil Shawe stated, “Bringing viable treatments to patients quickly is a key factor in defeating COVID-19. We commend Orphan Reach on advancing their research during this challenging time.”
