Overcoming Drug Shortages


A recent example of the flexibility and efficiency of CSI’s Quality team was their response to the unforeseen unavailability of a chosen warehouse for the storage of a country-specific product due to be supplied to one of our partners’ ongoing clinical trials. Due to unforeseen circumstances at the warehouse, the intermediate storage of the medication became impossible at very short notice. Since the re-supply date for the medication was in less than 10 days’ time, rapid action was required to maintain timely supply for the trial.


While it is critical to the success of any study to ensure that Quality standards are upheld and regulations followed, there is sometimes also need to be adaptable to respond to shifting priorities in ongoing studies. As such, CSI’s Project Management team reached out to our Quality team with viable alternatives to the original warehouse. The Quality team proceeded to adjust their working hours to facilitate immediate communication with the new warehouse located on the other side of the globe.


Having successfully gathered all documentation required, and after performing a full audit and qualification of the warehouse in just 5 days, the efforts of CSI’s Quality team ensured consistent supply of the product required for our partner’s clinical trial that was in progress and could not afford to be delayed. This was an excellent display of efficiency and collaboration between CSI and the new warehouse’s Quality teams.
