  7. 7. EmpiriStat, Inc.2012-2013 Corporate Capabilities Brief Summary of ServicesEmpiriStat is committed to providing the highest quality services, superior performance, and unmatchedcustomer accommodation. Every team member at EmpiriStat possesses a comprehensive knowledge ofregulatory affairs and applicable FDA and ICH guidances-- from our statistical and programming group,to clinical data management to our clinical monitors.It is our internal strengths, corporate structure and standard operating procedures, and most importantlysynergy as a team, that eliminates errors and redundancies that are not tolerable. Below we provide abrief overview of our expertise, but highly recommend calling us to speak with us personally.Biostatistics and Statistical ProgrammingOur biostatistician’s provide statistical guidance on all clinical development program strategies,development of optimal study designs, endpoint selection, sample size, randomization, blinding, and theappropriate statistical methods for each design. They provide guidance on the selection of optimalefficacy and safety endpoints and are particularly versed in various statistical methods, including whatmay or may not be accepted for products and devices with the FDA. They know the importance ofplanning for the collection of data, in terms of the study design and testing of the hypothesis(es). Samplesize and power calculations are devised based on previous literature, FDA expectations and guidelines,and the appropriate statistical methodology chosen. We understand and are ready to recommend theappropriate statistical techniques, even when those techniques may not be the “standard” for the fieldcurrently or devise a mathematical approach to address that specific situation. We can cite the traditionaltests that we have experience in but our knowledge and the application of that knowledge is where weexcel.We have served as presenting statisticians at the DSMB on behalf of the study and Sponsor, as well as theDSMB statistician, and as the unblinded reporting statistician. We prepare all appropriate statisticalprogramming and reports based on our function, have a full understanding of the data, and can providequick analyses and reporting during the meeting if the Chair requires it. Any statistician that works in anyrole of the DSMB is thoroughly versed in sequential monitoring techniques, understands the role of theDSMB, is able to explain the statistical methodology of those sequential techniques, futility analyses,statistical penalties for multiple looks at the data, and statistical justification for stopping early forefficacy or safety.In addition, we provide full CDISC implementation for your submissions through SDTM conversion andADaM datasets. We have internally implemented documented techniques that saves our collaboratorstime during SDTM conversion, and have tips at the beginning of the studies on how some of our methodscan be adapted early in the process. It is never too early to have your ISS and ISE analyses and plansdeveloped to be implemented through your various phases as well.It is our excellence in communication of statistical methodology, reasoning and presentation of analyses,that has captured the interest of our clients. Our explanation to an investigator, interdisciplinary team,Data and Safety Monitoring Board, or a lay person is made in a way for that concept to be understood.We all consider ourselves at EmpiriStat constant learners, educators and mentors. If we cannot explain toyou why we should do something the way we propose, or give you options and the reasoning behindthose options, and you do not understand—that is our fault. It is our duty to teach, recommend andlearn.7|P age
  8. 8. EmpiriStat, Inc.2012-2013 Corporate Capabilities BriefTrainingAn effective training plan is an essential requirement at the start of a study to deliver consistency throughout the study by ensuring a uniform interpretation of the study protocol, CRFs, safety, and all study procedures. Our training agenda’s include study-specific training (protocol review and execution, CRF training, safety) as well as general clinical training (ICH/GCP, investigative site expectations, and other key topics). With EmpiriStat you get a team that is well versed and experienced in preparing and delivering training for clinical researchers. We also provide Capacity Building for research centers within and outside the United States. The EmpiriStat Series 101 Training is comprised of a four day hands- on course that provides participants thebackground and essentials of Epidemiology, Clinical Data Management, Clinical Trial Foundations, andStatistics for Non-Statisticians. Participants are able to receive a valuable education and the toolsnecessary to design a clinical trial, generate data reports and provide scientific critique of research. Thecourse also teaches attendees how to develop work-plans and standard operating procedures to ensure thesafety of study subjects during a clinical trial.Building from that solid knowledge base, we offer a Series 201 standard course as well. In this course,the building blocks of Series 101 are emphasized, butare expanded upon in EpidemiologicalInvestigations and Analyses, Advanced Topics inClinical Trials, Data Management Strategies andImplications and Statistical Analyses andInterpretation. Training methods are very important,and as such we used didactic, hands on and smallgroup sessions using skills in these areas. Ourapproach is through the use of slides and presentations,group case studies, group discussion and exploration,directed question and answer periods and summaryquizzes for the main topics of the day.Our success in providing this training is evident in thatwe have been a leading training provider to the President’s We go anywhere in the world for you!Emergency Program for Aids Research (PEPFAR) andhave delivered countless training sessions in clinical research throughout Africa.There are a number of clinical trial models that may be utilized within an organization and itsdepartments, between an organization and its subcontractors, and within a Clinical Research Network.Regardless of the model employed, for clinical trials to be successful, there must be collaborationamongst the stakeholders. There should be an examination of each group’s functional roles, anunderstanding of the technical methods utilized as well as an appreciation of the behaviors, relationshipsand values that enable an organization to carry out complex tasks.8|P age
  9. 9. EmpiriStat, Inc.2012-2013 Corporate Capabilities BriefOur Training StyleWe understand that in the real world, personnel usually learn by seeing a problem, raising a question thenfinding the answer. Our courses are structured in such a way that the material is taught in a purposeful,sequential way, modeling after real world problem solving. Trainees will gain by the end of the course asolid improvement/understanding, as a result of the learning activities, through the use of:  the use of slides and presentations  small group case study sessions on the topic area  individual work on a problem for resolution  group discussions and exploration  directed question and answer periods  summary quizzes of the main topics for the dayWe also offer tailored training for our clients whether you want an on-site brown-bag training session oran off-site training event at a designated site. Our training series and educational training modulesinclude Biostatistics, Data Management and Standards, Pharmacovigilence and Safety Reporting, ClinicalMonitoring and Data and Safety Monitoring Board Training.Clinical Research Support StaffingAt EmpiriStat our staffing division focuses on providing clinical research professionals and expertise forall therapeutic areas for products and devices. We serve the clinical research needs of our clients withwhom we partner. Our approach allows us to provide a wide range of tactical and experiencedprofessionals with strategic solutions to the primary challenges that our clients face.Our approach is to listen, consult and partner with our clients.We understand the criticality of selecting the right candidate for the right job, so we select each onecarefully. The first step in our recruiting process is identification of the appropriate skills sets, educationaland training background, and experience level required to perform each job. For each new requirement,we consider the job duties and requirements, educational and training background needed, experiencelevel required, and any special skills necessary. Only through understanding our clients’ needs and carefulscreening of candidates can we select the right person for each job. We consider factors such as thedesired salary range, the difficulty of finding the skills set, and the skills that are required versus the skillsthat are helpful to have. Our staff carefully screens candidates’ qualifications as they relate to each clientthrough intense question and inquiry. This careful selection process leads to an increased level of clientsatisfaction and project success.9|P age
  10. 10. EmpiriStat, Inc.2012-2013 Corporate Capabilities BriefRisk Based Monitoring ToolsRisk based prioritization monitoring has changed the way we look at study management, monitoring andstatistical reporting. The first of two new draft guidance for industry, "Oversight of ClinicalInvestigations— Risk-Based Approach to Monitoring" was released in August 2011. In conjunction withthis new guidance, the FDA will be describing a new review mechanism for monitoring Sponsors andClinical Research Organizations (CROs) during the IND application phase.At EmpiriStat we understand and know how to implement the FDA guidances and at the same timedevelop the steps to save a Sponsor time and resources during their clinical development program. A riskbased monitoring program provides the necessary risk assessment for clinical conduct and data collectionthat applies available monitoring resources according to the identified risks – and reassesses those riskson a regular basis throughout the study. Monitoring resources include Statistical Prioritization Reportingas well as Regulatory Monitoring.Sponsor Preventative Maintenance Program (SPMP)Our Sponsor Preventative and Maintenance Program (SPMP), is a program in which we develop andimplement standard site metrics at the beginning of the IND phase for your clinical development program,in preparation for NDA filing. We create Sponsor and site level Statistical Monitoring Reports with theirsubsequent risk rankings to identify any clinical and logistical issues that will trigger possible GCPquestion or concern, thus resulting in a higher probability of FDA inspection during your NDAprocess. When applicable, our team works with the Sponsor to go out to the site to remedy and train onidentified issues.EmpiriStat’s SPMP is an ongoing process; the metrics built will remain and will be automatically initiatedfor all new studies and reports created for the Sponsor on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis forreview. All reports are posted electronically to a Sponsor on a dedicated and secured file sharing system,which the Sponsor controls on who receives access. Site Reports may also be sent and reviewed by ourteam with your sites. We give comments and updates as needed on all reports.10 | P a g e
  11. 11. EmpiriStat, Inc.2012-2013 Corporate Capabilities Brief Case StudiesChallenge: A pharmaceutical company was only months away from filing their NA with the FDA.They did not have an in-house Biostatistics/Statistical Programming group for review and writing of theISS SAP and to conduct validation programming for their program.Solution: EmpiriStat collaborated with the company and provided all of the services required as theSponsor’s in-house Biostatistics and Statistical Programming group to support both the ISS and the NDAfiling within a very condensed timeframe without compromising quality.Result: The Company received biostatistical guidance, writing, reviewing and statistical validationprogramming from EmpiriStat to complete the filing within the existing company timelines. Thecompany saved time and money by consulting with EmpiriStat who provided flexible, time efficient andcost effective services in an expedited manner set by the client’s needs.Challenge: The client had contracted with EmpiriStat for part-time Senior Clinical and RegulatoryAffairs Management and expertise. The client was also in the process of contracting for a full serviceCRO to provide Data Management, Clinical Monitoring, Safety Reporting, Biostatistics, and Regulatorysupport for their multi-center clinical trial. However, the client was having contracting difficulties andthe trial timelines were being delayed.Solution: EmpiriStat was contracted by client to expand their current services to provide a Bridge untilthe CRO could be selected and contracted. In a condensed timeline of just 4 months, EmpiriStat createdthe deliverables and provided the on-site professionals to initiate the clinical trial (including completeCase Report Forms, Manual of Procedures, a Safety Reporting System, Study Specific Procedures for aData and Safety Monitoring Board, all training modules, Clinical Monitoring Plan and 2 certified researchcoordinators and one professional consultant). A clear transition plan was developed betweenEmpiriStat’s bridge of services to the CRO.Result: The client moved forward with the deliverables required to initiate the trial without further delay,had no cost or delay associated with a new group getting up to speed on the trial since EmpiriStat wascurrently providing management guidance, and saved time and money when the CRO was hired since allprimary deliverables had been created for the study.Challenge: A European device company was preparing for filing with the U.S. FDA with a devicealready approved in Europe. They had consulted with an academic Biostatistician in the U.S., but wereunsure of the analyses and recommendations that the Biostatistician had made and was looking for anindependent opinion.Solution: EmpiriStat was consulted to review the statistical analyses and recommendations and toprovide their own assessment prior to the company filing. EmpiriStat Principal Biostatistician, Dr. NicoleC. Close, who has extensive U.S. Regulatory experience, along with an EmpiriStat Statistician located inthe United Kingdom who is well versed in EMEA guidance, reviewed the information and provided adetailed Statistical Risk Analysis for the filing.Result: The device company was provided with a detailed Statistical Risk Analysis summary and anindependent assessment. The company made modifications to their filing based on EmpiriStat’srecommendations and successfully filed with the U.S. FDA.11 | P a g e
