Clinical Study Protocol Translation

Translation services are becoming an indispensable component along with the increasing demand for conducting multi-country clinical trials. The clinical trial follows a carefully controlled protocol, a study plan that describes what will be done in the study, how it will be conducted, and why each part of the study is necessary. Clinical Study Protocols (CSPs) assist communication among all the people working in the trial and can be regarded as a "written agreement between the investigator, the subject, and the scientific community." Each protocol describes the objectives, design, methods, statistical aspects and organization of a trial. Well-written CSPs are essential to the conduct of successful clinical studies.

Protocols are conventional documents with a relatively patterned structure. Standardized elements in a clinical protocol (Spilker and Bert, 1984):
A. Protocol format
  • Title page
  • Table of contents
  • List of abbreviations
  • References and appendices
B. Protocol content
  • Patient enrolment and duration of the study
  • Location of study site
  • Factors to control within or outside the study environment
  • Shipping of drugs to and from the study site
  • Obtaining, handling, and shipping biological samples
  • Defining the time of patient entry and completion
  • Eliciting and categorizing adverse reactions
  • Missed appointments
  • Patient lost to follow-up
  • Patient discontinuation
  • Early study discontinuation
  • Medical emergencies
C. Administrative elements
  • Administrative responsibilities of the investigator
  • Informed consent
  • Institutional approval
  • Confidentiality of data
  • Collection and processing of data
  • Publishing of data
  • Monitoring of the study
  • Protocol amendments
