Clinical Trials for Consumer Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

Leading clinical trial expertise across dermatology, dentistry and podiatry therapeutic areas providing investigator site support for efficacy and safety

Pharmaceutical clinical trials are an essential step in the development of new medicines. Clinical trials establish the efficacy and safety of new pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter medicines or medical devices. 

Finding the right Investigator site is crucial to the success of a clinical trial. Sites must have adequate capacity, experienced site staff, access to suitable patient populations and the ability to perform required clinical assessments. Responsive participant patient enrollment and dedicated clinical trial managers are critical to achieving your development milestones and delivering study outcomes to meet regulatory requirements.
