Wellspring Clinical Services Specialist Clinical Services

Wellspring Clinical Services is a leading niche clinical services provider, backed with over 100 years’ experience in pharmaceutical logistics from parent company Mawdsleys.

Clinical services

Wellspring have worked hard to build strong relationships with drug manufacturers and develop global distribution networks, while adhering to strict MHRA guidelines on GDP. Add an unrivalled combination of clinical trial specialists, an in-house procurement team fluent in six languages, and an on-site team of global regulatory experts, and they are the ideal clinical trial partner.

Clinical trial regulations

Not only do they have a resident team of EU Qualified Persons, QP (IMPs), and relevant manufacturing and importation authorisations for investigational medicinal products (MIA IMPs), but with their experienced team, Wellspring can design a service to facilitate the smooth distribution of your clinical trial.

In line with GCP and GMP requirements, their experienced clinical labelling specialists can also design, generate and apply all the clinical trial labels you require, in whatever language you need, at a competitive cost and with a rapid turnaround time.

Comparator supplies

They can source even the most difficult to obtain comparators in single batch, packsize, quantities, or brands in multiple markets. They can provide reassurance on product safety and continuity of supply and take full responsibility for the logistics and QP release as well as guaranteeing complete confidentiality.

Placebos and encapsulation service

Wellspring can also provide you with high-quality placebo supplies and encapsulation services; they can also source all the comparators you need directly from around the globe. So whether you need one hundred placebos or one million comparators, the search ends with Wellspring.

Named patient program

Through parent company Mawdsleys, they can also work in partnership with manufacturers to help make products in clinical trial available on a named patient basis for patients who do not meet the clinical trial protocol. This helps manufacturers create access for their product pre-launch and satisfy advanced demand for the product. It is a key part of a pre-launch program, but it is time-consuming and difficult without a global pharmaceutical logistics network in place. Wellspring can develop a program that is fully compliant to global named patient regulations.

Biological services

At Wellspring there is a dedicated team of biologists, GMP auditors and QP (IMP)s who can conduct a full audit of your manufacturing premises and, subject to a satisfactory outcome, release your biologic with QP declaration.

Whether your product is an advanced therapeutic product, combined advanced therapeutic product; whether it is a stem cell, tissue or a form of cell therapy, Wellspring has the knowledge and experience to help with QP (IMP) release into Europe.

They can also help with clinical trial applications or legal representation in Europe if needed, as well as creating a patient registry, which is a regulatory requirement in Europe when trialling a biologic, cell therapy, stem cell, advanced therapeutic medicinal product (ATMP), combined advanced medicinal product or medical device.

Biological audit – Vital Therapies

A team of biological specialists from Wellspring conducted an audit at the premises of Vital Therapies, the developers of a human liver cell-based device. Known as ELAD (extracorpeal liver assist device), the machine acts as an artificial liver taking over a person’s liver function for a few days or weeks to keep them alive until either a transplant becomes available, or the liver regenerates on its own.

The result was that Vital Therapies were then able to navigate the regulations concerning named patient basis and import the advanced therapy product into the UK at the request of a doctor.

Wellspring is currently coordinating the importation, shipping and logistics for the trial, which has already begun in the UK and will be rolled out to Denmark, Spain and France, and will involve over 80 patients.
