MedComms Day


June 9, 2021

Today is MedComms Day! We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about our core business activity: medical and scientific writing.

Our medical communication agency has been serving the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, biotech companies, manufacturers of medical devices, healthcare professionals, and the wider scientific research community for more than 30 years. How? Medical communication, and particularly the writing of regulatory and clinical documentation related to the development of drugs and other healthcare products, is an integral part of these sectors.

  • Setting up a clinical study requires the submission of a Clinical Trial Authorization (CTA) application to the health regulatory authorities. Many documents need to be written for this application: an Investigational Medicine Product Dossier (IMPD), an investigator’s brochure, a synopsis and a clinical trial protocol, an informed consent form (ICF), etc. In addition, a Clinical Study Report (CSR) needs to be written after each trial phase to communicate the results to the regulatory authorities, and a lay summary must also be published in the European database of clinical studies.
  • Preparing a drug Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) also requires specific skills, involving the writing of a Common Technical Document (CTD, clinical and nonclinical), and a Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP), if applicable. After submitting the MAA dossier, national (e.g., the French Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products, ANSM) or international (European Medicines Agency [EMA], Food Drug Administration [FDA]) health agencies usually require detailed responses to answer specific questions about the drug being assessed.
  • Pharmacovigilance documents (e.g., Periodic Safety Update Reports [PSURs], Development Safety Update Reports [DSURs] are also essential documents that need to be written at various points during the “lifespan” of a drug.

Our team is passionate about scientific and medical writing: our profession is diverse and enriching with many various missions on many various themes!
