Karyopharm Taps TransPerfect as eTMF and Functional TMF Provider

NEW YORK, April 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransPerfect, a leading provider of global development and commercialization solutions to the life sciences industry, today announced that Karyopharm Therapeutics has implemented Trial Interactive as its electronic Trial Master File (eTMF).

Trial Interactive is a web-based, 21 CFR Part 11 compliant platform that eliminates the redundancies inherent in paper-based study start-up and TMF management. By providing study stakeholders with real-time access to clinical trial documentation, Trial Interactive cuts out the travel and shipping costs associated with paper review and reconciliation, consolidating clinical trial documentation processes for Karyopharm. With modules for e-feasibility, study start-up, eTMF, document management, and learning management systems, Trial Interactive offers Karyopharm an end-to-end e-clinical solution to streamline their processes and increase inspection readiness for their TMFs.

“We looked at many eTMF systems, but felt Trial Interactive was the most robust for Karyopharm’s global use,” stated Tracey Marshall, Senior Director, Clinical Operations at Karyopharm. “It provides real-time access for our global teams and transparency into the status of the TMF for all of our studies. Plus, we have access to Trial Interactive’s other integrated modules as we evolve our process.”

Liz Elting, Co-CEO of TransPerfect, stated, “We are honored to be selected as the eTMF provider by Karyopharm. Since we built the Trial Interactive platform over six years ago, our goal has always been to enable us to assist companies with paperless initiatives just like these in order to maximize efficiency in conducting studies and expedite time to market for our clients and their products.”

“Karyopharm is taking a very important step in keeping with the trends and best practices in clinical research,” added TransPerfect Co-CEO Phil Shawe. “We have invested massively in R&D related to our web-based eTMF solutions, and the Karyopharm engagement is a true validation of the value that our technology platform provides. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Karyopharm.”
