Multi-clinical trials, where study drugs or procedures are performed to document efficacy and safety, are ususally audited by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) once an application for drug/procedure clearance has been made.

One of the studies at the RCDRC was recently audited by the company sponsoring a study at the RCDRC. The outcome of the audit was most positive. No significant errors or problems were found. The study team, including the study coordinator, staff and investigators had reached a high level of efficacy and ability to follow protocol. No critique and lost of applauds to the team!! Needless to say this serves as an example of the level of skill, routine and efficacy in conducting clinical trials, we have achieved at the RCDRC.
