Regulatory and Medical Writing Services

Forward-thinking medical and regulatory writers that produce cohesive and scientifically-accurate documents.

Close monitoring of regional regulations and guidance ensures the latest regulatory requirements are well understood and implemented across documents.

MMS has a strong global presence in regulatory and medical writing services to consistently produce cohesive, quality focused, and scientifically accurate documents. MMS offers the largest number of writers with a full range of experience and in-depth knowledge of laws and regulations across regions in the industry.   

Our writing team supports Sponsors on project level or across writing pipelines including Functional Service Provider (FSP) relationships. Our expertise spans across various therapeutic areas and all phases of drug development including nonclinical (preclinical), CMC, clinical, regulatory, safety, and medical communications documents.  

The success of MMS Medical Writing teams is built on strong processes, uncompromising quality standards, and a dedication to ongoing education at all levels. Our team’s professionalism and expertise are reflected in the positive feedback from Sponsors, e.g. “from day one, we were impressed with the efficient and smart decisions brought forth by MMS to bring this drug to market.” 

The MMS team focuses on continuous improvements through technology-aided authoring software to streamline the medical writing process, including the use of immutable tables in the documents. Our proprietary technology is used by MMS experts to increase writing efficiency and quality of in-text tables in the documents, build productivity of quality control, and lower the risk of errors in the documents. MMS medical writing technology currently includes  tech-enabled templates and Automatiqc®. 

Clinical Development

The trusted and collaborative medical writers at MMS seamlessly integrate with sponsors to act as one unified team. Whether the study is interventional or observational, MMS has successfully aided in the development or amendment of protocols, Informed Consent Forms (ICFs), Investigator Brochures (IBs), and Clinical Study Reports (CSRs) with complex study designs and analytical models. The clinical development industry is an ever-changing field, and staying ahead of industry changes and ensuring all clinical documents are compliant to the needs of health authorities is a source of pride. Whether starting from the concept stage, amending existing documents, or facing overwhelming timelines, MMS ensures that every sponsor is provided with high quality documents that exceed expectations.

Nonclinical Regulatory Writing Services

Nonclinical evaluation is a key component of drug development. Multiple nonclinical studies are required to determine the safe dose for a first-in-human (FIH) study and collect safety data in the development of any new disease treatment. Understanding of the regulatory laws and guidance as it applies to nonclinical program development and nonclinical regulatory submission documents is crucial given the growing complexity of drug development and changing regulatory requirements.  

MMS is a unique CRO with group of scientific writers who are subject matter experts in nonclinical area and regulatory writing. MMS nonclinical writers are focused on accurate interpretation of the nonclinical data relevant to clinical findings and cross linking it to the quality aspects of the drug to be tailored to regional and regulatory submission requirements, or the treatment type, whether it is a small molecule or biotech product. 

Our nonclinical writing expertise includes Module 2.4 Nonclinical Overview, Module 2.6 Written and Tabulated Summaries, as well as Module 4 reports for the full spectrum of nonclinical studies. In addition to our expertise in Module 2 and 4 eCTD regulatory documents, MMS nonclinical writers are skilled in authoring meeting requests, briefing documents and Investigator Brochures (IB).

CMC Regulatory Writing Services

The chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) regulatory writing services are supported by a technical division of the MMS regulatory submissions team that prepares and reviews the CMC components of regulatory submissions. Expertise with a variety of health authorities allows MMS to expedite the submission of quality CMC documentation through global or regionally-targeted dossiers.

Additionally, CMC writers at MMS aid in the creation of drug development plans to meet regulatory, technical, and quality requirements throughout the stages of the product lifecycle development. This includes the performance of gap analyses and creation of remediation plans, as well as continued support to address any additional concerns that arise during development.

Regulatory Submissions

In the past five years, regulatory submission writers at MMS have drafted components of the Common Technical Document (CTD) for Modules 2-5 for more than 50 regulatory submissions. The team is a trusted source for unparalleled regulatory writing across a broad range of therapeutic areas and programs, including rare and ultra-rare indications, biologics and biosimilars, qualified infectious diseases, pediatric-populations, and programs designated for expedited development. With an emphasis on quality at every draft, MMS regulatory writers drive timelines, lead discussions to reconcile feedback, and ensure that style and messages are consistent and accurate across all documents in every submission.

Additionally, MMS is an industry leader in the development of Risk Management Plans (RMPs), Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) documents, product label development and proprietary processes for effective 505(b)(2) submissions. Regulatory writers at MMS understand the regional and division-specific requirements for original applications and supplements, and all teams are trained for subsequent submission success, to allow for effective global submissions or adaptation to future applications.

Post Approval Support

MMS medical writers are skilled at navigating the time-sensitive and complex regulatory post-approval environment. A sponsor’s writing needs do not end after a drug is approved, and MMS medical writers have expertise with annual requirements, including Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs) and Periodic Benefit Risk Evaluation Reports (PBRERs). As the drug safety profile changes, novel formulations are developed, or new indications are sought, the team of MMS safety writers can provide updates to RMPs, REMS, product labels, and comprehensive writing for pre approval supplements.

With an extensive knowledge of health authority guidelines, MMS can mobilize a global team of regulatory and medical writers to deliver high-quality, time sensitive documents that meet strict regulatory deadlines.

Medical Communications

Communication of scientific and medical information is increasingly important with today’s data sharing expectations. The medical writers at MMS leverage knowledge as established scientists to translate scientific data into key messages for a wide range of audiences, providing timely, high quality deliverables to meet all publishing and reporting needs.

In addition to providing technical writing expertise, MMS medical writers follow recognized publication standards and requirements to guide authors throughout the publication development process. This expertise allows sponsors and subject matter experts to focus their time on providing the essential input needed for an impactful publication.
