Adelaide, Australia | North Carolina, USA – Avance Clinical, the Australian and North American market-leading CRO for biotechs, has signed a strategic technology MOU with leading Korean decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) and eClinical technology company JNPMEDI Inc. The agreement expands Avance Clinical’s capabilities in the Asia-Pacific biotech clinical trials sector.

Anne Sim, Associate Director, Technology, and Innovation said, “Avance Clinical is focused on growing our networks with technology companies which offer high-quality innovative solutions designed to further accelerate the delivery of quality data to our biotech clients.

As we continue to invest in digital capacity, JNPMEDI is one company we are exploring. They are also located within the important Asia-Pacific region which really helps that relationship.”

Upon signing the MOU, Jae Hyun Lee J.D., D.D.S., Chief of Staff at JNPMEDI, expressed, “JNPMEDI is excited to partner with Avance Clinical. Korea biotech industry is an exciting and growing one, and one whose needs are uniquely answered by Avance Clinical and the Australian clinical trial market. The partnership will provide a turnkey answer to the biotech market.”

JNPMEDI’s core technology is Maven Clinical Cloud which offers a singular ecosystem for digital clinical solutions capable of streamlining activities from protocol to CSR. This ‘one stop shop’ supports subject participation while delivering efficiencies to study sites, sponsors and CROs.

The Avance Clinical Technology and Innovation team identifies and reviews the latest technology solutions including machine learning and artificial intelligence applications to support global systems integrations.

JNPMEDI and Avance Clinical connected recently at the KoNECT Korea conference in Seoul where Avance Clinical presented to over 45 Korean biotechs at a clinical trials symposium event. The presentation focused on Avance Clincial’s GlobalReady drug development acceleration solution.

The Avance Clinical team, including CEO Yvonne Lungershausen, and Vice President, Commercial Business Development, Liahna Toy shared drug development options including conducting clinical trials across Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States to support fast tracking clinical trial development programs.

Andy Hu, Business Development Manager for Asia, said Avance Clinical offers two critical solutions for biotechs.

“Avance Clinical in Australia can maximize the 43.5% rebate on clinical trial spend, and in the United States can provide high quality trials following the FDA pathway. Both approaches were received as attractive propositions for biotechs wanting to maximize their data captured and conserve funding,” he said.

Liahna Toy, Vice-President, Commercial Business Development said:

“Our Avance Clinical teams in Australia and the United States offer world-class quality data and cultural alignment for Korean biotech clients designed to make their drug development programs seamless and successful.”

“Avance Clinical’s study data is accepted by all the main regulatory authorities including the MFDS and FDA; and conversely the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia recognizes data generated in Korea.”

Avance Clinical expanded operations in the US last year to offer its clients a seamless drug development journey from Australia to the US with the same CRO.

Avance Clinical CEO Yvonne Lungershausen (3rd from right) and Executive Vice President, North American Operations, John Mann (2nd from right) celebrate the opening of the new US office with team members.

Avance Clinical is the largest and most established full-service Australian and New Zealand CRO with a proven track-record of data acceptance by the FDA and all other major regulatory bodies.

Avance Clinical’s Executive Vice President, North American Operations, John Mann, said he was proud to launch the company’s new North American headquarters.

“Avance Clinical has a fantastic reputation within the biotech industry and I am pleased that we have selected North Carolina for our North American headquarters.

“The Research Triangle Area (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill) is home to more than 600 life science companies.

The North America team will significantly increase in size over the next 12 months and this prime location will support that growth.”

Avance Clinical CEO Yvonne Lungershausen recently travelled to North Carolina to officially open the new office and welcome new staff members.

“Our North America operations offer our biotech clients conducting their early phase studies in Australia and New Zealand a seamless journey into the US to continue their clinical development programs, retaining the same high-quality CRO, which reduces time and cost and delivers quality FDA accepted data.

More than 50 biotech clients are now taking advantage of our GlobalReady program.

This GlobalReady model is designed to extend biotechs’ investments so they can achieve greater clinical development milestones with reduced spend, all with the assurance of FDA-accepted data.

In addition, the attractive 43.5% rebate on clinical spend in Australia, offers our clients the opportunity to utilize our North American operations expertise and team, whilst maintaining services in Australia to maximize their rebate potential.

We often point to the fact that there are currently more than 280 Phase III global trials that have conducted their Phase I study in Australia, which again demonstrates Australian data acceptability with the FDA and other major regulatory authorities.
