Data Monitoring Committees

Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) services are required to monitor safety and/or efficacy for many clinical trials. EMB provides essential data management and statistical support to ensure timely and accurate results to the committee. Our seasoned statisticians have supported DMCs as both a committee member and the unblinded support statistician. Hence our team can provide expertise to interpret results, address data issues, or handle ad-hoc requests on-demand.

EMB also has experienced data management, programming, and project management personnel to provide data and program quality reports as well as manage the DMC activities.
