Drug Abuse Liability

Discover the Abuse Potential of Investigational Drugs

Accurately assessing and evaluating the human abuse potential of investigational compounds can make trials complex and resource-heavy when using traditional paper and pencil methods.

Cambridge Cognition offers a computerised patient-report system enabling quick, accurate and paperless measurement of the abuse potential for investigational drugs in clinical trials. As a trusted system of choice with leading organisations conducting abuse liability studies, the regulatory approved Clinical Trial Information System for Abuse Liability (CTIS-AL) is a cost-effective digital solution to paper and pencil questionnaires and scales, reducing staff workloads and trial costs.

Benefits of CTIS-AL

  • Minimises the risk of late stage failure
  • Regulatory approved to support label claims
  • Enhances decision making in drug development
  • Clinically relevant outcomes measured
  • Reduces trial costs
