Will you be including the molecular characteristics of the patient’s cancer in inclusion criteria? Are all of the protocol-defined procedures appropriate for collecting data that will support a new drug application or investigational medicinal product dossier? Thoughtful design can aid in defining biomarkers to facilitate later-phase enrollment. We can help you develop novel methods to accelerate proof of concept, determine dose escalation and titration regimens, and adhere to globally consistent quality standards for patient safety and regulatory guidelines.

Our clinic in San Antonio, Texas, was designed specifically for early-phase trials. It is ICH-GCP* compliant, accommodates 300 study participants, and includes all essential facilities for storing and dispensing study drugs and maintaining investigator site files and study data. Specimens are seamlessly transferred for analysis to our bioanalytical lab or a lab of your choice.
