Four Best SAS Practices to Speed up Clinical Trials

“These last few years, we have made tremendous investment in developing SAS programming expertise and best practices within our company" says Ale Gicqueau, President and CEO at Clinovo

Clinovo reaffirms its expertise with clinical trial SAS development by once again presenting four new best practices at the leading 2011 industry SAS conferences. Clinovo will share its SAS expertise during the SAS® Global Forum conference taking place in Las Vegas April 4th to April 7th 2011, and during PharmaSUG in Nashville, Tennessee from May 8th to May 11th, 2011.

“An Excel framework to convert clinical data to CDISC SDTM”, presented by Stephen Chan, Sr. Manager of Clinical and Statistical Programming at Clinovo, describes a SAS clinical system developed in-house that converts clinical data into CDISC SDTM. By automatically and systematically translating data into CDISC SDTM, the standard format for regulatory submission, companies are better prepared to improve their time to market.

"Creating an Excel report: A comparison of the different techniques" will be presented by Romain Miralles, a Clinovo senior SAS programmer expert, at the SAS® Global Forum 2011 held in Las Vegas. He describes the different techniques to generate an excel file from SAS, and provides recommendations on the appropriate method to use. The SAS® Global Forum is the premier event for SAS® professionals worldwide, with more than 3000 attendees. “Presenting at SAS Global Forum is always a privilege and I am looking forward to learning about the latest SAS innovations” says Romain. He will also present “Choosing the Best Method to Create an Excel Report" at PharmaSUG 2011. By knowing the different techniques available, SAS programmers can quickly identify the best solution for a project and program reports faster and in a more elegant way.

"Permutation via Recursive Macro", presented by Jian Dai, a Clinovo SAS expert, demonstrates how to implement a recursive algorithm that generates the permutations of a list of distinguished elements with SAS macro.

“We are looking forward to share this year again our SAS expertise for Clinical Trials” says Ale Gicqueau, President and CEO at Clinovo. “These last few years, we have made tremendous investment in developing SAS programming expertise and best practices within our company. This investment is paying off today, with consistent industry recognition of our top talent and domain expertise as a SAS solution provider.”

In 2010, Clinovo introduced its Online Query Management System at PharmaSUG and shared several SAS® best practices at the WUSS 18th Annual Conference. Clinovo counts a team of programmers with very high SAS proficiency who develop in-house Web-based clinical systems. Such Clinical systems include NEAT, a Clinical Data Cleaning for EDC based studies, Clinovo Architect which converts clinical data into CDISC SDTM format, Study Dashboards, Patient Profile and Project Management tools. Clinovo SAS® technology is the optimum solution for faster time to market for pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Our experts will be available for questions during and after the conference presentations.
