Why Statistical Consultancy?

Statistics is regarded as one of the core disciplines of pharmaceutical research, which relies on the collection of objective data to demonstrate clinical effect. Biostatistical consulting covers issues from study design and strategies, to the analysis of study data and informed interpretation of results. The benefits of Statistical Consultancy are:

Supervising data collection to provide meaningful measurable quantities

Coding and manipulating data for a suitable analysis, having selected from a wide array of possible analysis options

Intepreting data with an appreciation of the play of random chance

An honest and objective external voice

Time to explore alternative approaches outside of the day-to-day demand of running a live study

Cost effective trial designs to suit your budget

Reach your IND Submission goals

Reach your IND Submission, publication or research goals as you choose the right expertise to match your needs from a range of consultants. Due to our biostatistical heritage, Quanticate has been an industry leader in biostatistical consulting for over 25 years.

Clinical Study Design

An optimally designed trial can reduce your costs and save time, either by requiring a smaller sample size or by stopping a trial earlier in time without continued wasted efforts. Our highly skilled statistical consultancy team will ensure your study is designed to meet regulatory requirements for approval or post-submission, and can support you with:

Writing statistical sections of complex protocols including master protocols

Simulations to estimate and optimise study sample size

Novel designs across drug development programmes

Pharmacokinetic analysis and reporting

Data Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMBs)

Best statistical practice including Bayesian Methods

Adaptive trial designs and interim analyses

Efficient support for biosimilars

Incorporating mHealth apps, wearable and ePro solutions

Alternative Trial Types

Go beyond the industry recognized standard of randomized controlled clinical trials (RCT), and get your drug approved using alternative trial types from the following sources:

Registry studies

Health economics and outcomes research

Real world evidence/data

These sources requires specific methods and an understanding of Observational Studies to ensure the correct conclusions are drawn. Plan the correct analytical methods to deal with these data sources and ensure all potential source of bias are identified and properly managed.


The definition of a study estimand is a crucial part of study planning since it specifies the scientific question of interest. Define the correct study estimand by liaising with your clinical team to ensure you specify all components are consistent with the current regulatory framework.
