Current projects

We can contribute to your real-life study projects at different stages, with various involvements depending on your requirements.

For our team there is no such thing as a small project and there is no canned answer to your request.



Hybrid E-COHORTS (SNDS linkage)

PRAISE: identification of autoimmune manifestations during antibody "checkpoint inhibitor" therapy

(customer: CHU Strasbourg - pharmaceutical company)

Sanoïa’s role: design, plan and execute in "full-service mode" a 2000 patient e-cohort (physician, patient, SNDS and biobank) in oncology. Endpoint: qualify and quantify opportunistic autoimmunity secondary to cancer immunotherapy (OASI) during anti PD-1/ therapy.  Read more on clinical trials.

Standard e-cohort

Lupus patient e-cohort

(customer: Filière Maladie Rare)

Sanoïa’s role: deliver full-service CRO operations. Endpoint: via a "pilot" trial, qualify the profile of patients using an e-health service in order to provide design guidance for prospective cohorts in lupus studies.



French RMD Cohort (COVID-19)

(customer: Filière de Santé des Maladies Auto-Immunes et Auto-Inflammatoires Rares (FAI2R)

Sanoïa’s role: deliver full-service CRO operations. Endpoint: conduct a study that aimed to follow-up the clinical management of patients with chronic inflammatory rheumatism (CRI) or a rare or non-rare autoimmune/autoinflammatory disease who have presented or are suspected of having COVID-19.


The data are evaluated in real time on analytical dashboards designed jointly by the Sanoïa's teams and the consortium's experts, to enable the latter to carry out continuous statistical analyses.

Diabète LAB: research initiative for patients with diabetes

(customer: FFD (since 1938 the 1st French Diabetes Associations Federation)

Sanoïa’s role: deliver a secure platform (Diabèt’Acteur) allowing patients to confidently register, to participate in surveys, studies and interviews managed by FFD Diabète LAB, as well as full research services for the operation of the surveys and studies.

Ongoing studies in 2020:

ImBAIA: patient platform – Impact of Barriers and facilitators to Physical Activity in patients with Inflammatory Arthritis 

(customer: Groupe d’Etudes et de Recherche de l’appareil locomoteur - GERPAL)

Sanoïa’s role: development and operation of a multilingual patient platform for the collection of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and physical activity. The aim of this cross-sectional study with 200 patients is to investigate the Impact of Barriers and facilitators to Physical Activity in patients with Inflammatory Arthritis and to link it with physical activity collected by smartphone applications.

I-CARE: IBD cancer and serious infections in Europe

(customer: GETAID: the national IBD society in France)

Sanoïa’s role: develop and operate a multi-lingual patient platform to monitor 10000 patients in 15 countries, during 5 years. Endpoint: detect potential serious adverse reactions occurring when on biologics.


SAFIR: Safety and effectiveness of immune-modulating drugs in rheumatology 

(customers: ANSM (The National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products) and AP-HP (Paris Hospitals)

Sanoïa’s role: deliver a full digital e-cohort allowing "self safety" of rheumatology patients on immune-modulating drugs, in a process going from patient to regional safety centers (CRPV). Endpoint: quantify the prevalence of adverse events occurring when on these kind of drugs.

ART: 1st anti-TNF in rheumatoid polyarthritis (RA) in France

(customer: French Society for Rheumatology)

Sanoïa’s role: deliver a "quick inclusion" digital platform to wrap a legacy CRF, and operate a patient e-cohort. Endpoint: monitor safety of rheumatoid arthritis patients receiving their first anti-TNF treatment. Read more on clinicial trials.



COVIMID: Prevalence and seroconversion of COVID-19 in Autoimmune diseases in Europe (COVID-19)

(customer: Groupe d’Etudes et de Recherche de l’appareil locomoteur - GERPAL)

Sanoïa's role: deliver a full digital e-cohort.

COVIMID is a Cross- sectional observational study of 3600 patients of 9 months duration contributing to a better knowledge of the prevalence of clinical and serological COVID-19 disease in IMID across Europe.

Included population : Adult IMID patients with definite, clinically diagnosed Sjögren’s syndrome, systemic lupus erythematous, rheumatoid arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis or giant cell arteritis.

Read more on clinical trials.

PRO-COVID: Etude du temps jusqu'à obtention d'un état cliniquement acceptable (Patient Acceptable Symptom State PASS) à l'aide d'outils de santé perceptuelle validés (Patient Reported Outcomes, PRO) (COVID-19)

(customer: CHU Dijon - Bourgogne)

Sanoïa's role: deliver a e-CRF and provide online questionnaires in order to describe the time to onset of PASS (patient acceptable symptom state) and MCII (minimum clinical important improvement) in patients discharged from conventional hospitalization for COVID-19 infection.

RetroARV: treatment history of HIV in the SNDS 

(internal study)

Sanoïa sponsors and conducts a SNDS project that looks into the care and treatment history of HIV patients in France. The final EGB-based analysis report on therapeutic changes over the last 10 years, aims at documenting what kind of treatment do/did HIV patients receive or take and for how long. 

Prevalence of Sjögren’s Syndrome in the SNDS 

(customer: Bristol-Myers Squibb)

Sanoïa, as an Independent Research Agency (n° RERC171027), conducts a data analysis project for a pharmaceutical company to deliver the first study on how a medico-administrative database enables the determination of incidence, prevalence and costs of Sjögren’s syndrome in France. This study will provide data for the scientific community and patient associations.

RA-ILD: Prevalence of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) among patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in the SNDS 

(customer: Bristol-Myers Squibb)

Sanoïa has been an accredited contract research organization (RERC171027) since 2017. For one of our clients from the pharmaceutical industry we carry out the Rheumatoid Arthritis associated Interstitial Lung Disease (RA-ILD) project. This study aims at investigating medico-administrative data from the SNDS using descriptive analysis in order to provide a better overview of IL disease and RA to the scientific community.

PR et OS: Polyarthrite Rhumatoïde (PR) et prise en charge osseuse

(customer: Sanofi Aventis)

Sanoïa currently investigates the status of ongoing osteoporosis management in patients with rheumatoid arthritis in France. We carry out an analysis of the EGB which is a representative 1/97th sample on the registration number (NIR) of beneficiaries of the French health insurance system. These new insights gained on osteoporosis care in this particular population will allow a better understanding of practices in real-life, assessments of risk levels (disease duration, corticoid uses, etc.) related to bone fractures, and might contribute to the identification of areas for improvement of the overall care for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
