    Case Study #1

    A large pharmaceutical sponsor conducted a randomized, open label, blinded-endpoint parallel group study to investigate if a particular drug has a lower incident of GI Events than other similar drugs in subjects with osteoarthritis.

    Goal: Retrieve patient contact information from each site, locate the current contact information and return it to the site.

    Total LTFU Subjects: 443
    Number of Sites: 208

    Result: OmniTrace was successful in locating 91% of all LTFU patients.

    Case Study #2

    A medium sized pharmaceutical firm conducted a 56 week phase III trial to access the safety and efficiency of an obesity treatment program.

    Goal: Retrieve patient contact information from each site, locate the current contact information and return it to the site. If a patient was deceased we were to provide their date of death and the resource of such data. Additionally, we were to attempt to obtain a death certificate for each subject. If the subject was alive, we were to provide the most recent “alive as of” date.

    Total Subjects: 416
    Number of sites: 87

    Result: OmniTrace successfully determined the vital status for 99% of the subjects provided.

    Case Study #3

    A leading university research hospital conducted a small endocrinology study across a limited group of subjects.

    Goal: Work directly with hospital study coordinator to receive patient information, update the information and return directly to the coordinator.

    Total Subjects: 47

    Results: OmniTrace successfully located 44 of the 47 subjects.

    Case Study #4

    A large European based pharmaceutical firm conducted a parallel, randomized, controlled evaluation cardiovascular study throughout sites in 27 different countries.

    Goal: Utilizing our multi-lingual capabilities, OmniTrace was to retrieve subject information directly from the sites and return updated address and contact information.

    Total Subjects: 113
    Number of Sites: 67

    Result: OmniTrace successfully located 91% of US patients and 57% of international subjects. All work was conducted from OmniTrace’s office in the USA. No local investigators or independent contractors were utilized, which safeguards patient confidentiality.
