Specializing in the needs of emerging life science companies
Our company has previously retained CDS to work with us on two clinical trials. The second assignment, which was the larger of the two projects, involved overall project management for a 31-site, 360-patient trial in the hospital setting in the US and Canada. CDS did an excellent job in the site management of the trial. The CDS team developed a strong rapport with the PIs, clinical trial specialists and others at the sites. This permitted the study to proceed well through site qualification, trial execution, monitoring and site close-out. The team at CDS was large enough to handle the demands of a 31-site trial, yet small enough to allow us to get to know all the members of the CDS team on a first-name basis.
CDS was contracted by Medicure to audit four clinical sites (totaling ~1200 patients) located in the Netherlands in anticipation of a scheduled audit by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The in-house preparation of the audit was detailed and comprehensive, leading to a productive and successful two week on-site audit of the clinical sites. Regulatory guidance provided by CDS for the audit proved to be an essential component for the success of this project. After CDS completed its audit of the four clinical sites, the subsequent FDA audit found all four sites to be satisfactory.I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending CDS for its clinical study auditing services.
We hired GVICDS to implement the requirements of the ISO 13485 regulations for our medical device company. With GVICDS expert staff in Quality and Regulatory helping manage Miraculins systems, we were able to maintain an outstanding track record of ZERO nonconformities every year of our ISO audits.GVICDS also helped manage clinical trials for our products as well as provide key regulatory support for several global market positions for our medical devices.I valued the great working relationship that we had with GVICDS. What really stood out during our working relationship with GVICDS was their flexibility and response to our needs, especially when we needed to discuss and resolve issues. Dialogue was open and trusting, budget was negotiable and met our changing needs and this made us feel that they were an integral part of our team.

We have worked with the team at CDS for over 3 years on our clinical development program. We have found CDS to be very responsive to Sponsor needs, with excellent attention to detail and follow through in all aspects of our clinical program.
