About Lokavant

Lokavant is a technology company whose mission is to ensure that no clinical trial fails due to operational error. By integrating and analyzing the disparate data sources within clinical trials, Lokavant provides real-time visualizations and risk alerts to study sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) to enable data-driven decisions. These insights expedite trial timelines and reduce the costs of development, allowing safe and efficacious treatments to get to patients.

Lokavant centralizes trial data to power a machine learning model that anticipates trial risk, provides data-driven risk mitigation strategies, and predicts the impact of mitigation strategy implementation. Lokavant's anticipatory monitoring capability is grounded in a compendium of data from over 1,000 clinical trials and will improve with each deployment.
