Vince & Associates Clinical Research, a leading provider of Phase I-IV clinical trial services to the global biopharmaceutical industry announces the opening of their multi-million dollar, 90 bed Clinical Pharmacology Research Unit. This premier research facility is a culmination of years of planning and design by a team of over 50 clinical researchers led by Dr. Brad Vince, President and Medical Director of Vince & Associates Clinical Research.
The design delivers a boutique hotel experience for the study volunteers and a first class scientific research setting for the biopharmaceutical industry. Bedside 20-inch touch screen entertainment systems, in-house theater room, and individually themed luxury suites highlight the amenities that study volunteers appreciate. Clients receive the benefit of enhanced subject safety and security measures coupled with the Vince & Associates’ Physician Research Model where Principal Investigators lead and are intimately involved in all aspects of ongoing clinical studies.
“As a recognized industry leader with respect to subject recruitment, the luxurious amenities included in this expansion will allow us to better serve our biopharmaceutical clients on all levels including increased subject retention rates and enhanced safety monitoring features.” said Dr. Vince.
“The unit is purpose-built for the complex trials our clients require to make earlier drug development decisions and advance their drugs to market more aggressively than ever before. For example, we provide the full technical resources and medical expertise required for Phase I/IIa Proof of Concept (POC) studies which incorporate a single ascending dose (SAD), multiple ascending dose (MAD) and a patient proof of concept study into a single protocol.”
These designs offer significant time saving advantages to the client but require the expertise and facilities to ensure operational and scientific excellence. Vince and Associates has invested in facilities such as the addition of a USP 797-compliant Biosafety cabinet and full time pharmacy staff. This investment allows for sterile preparation from client’s API to be compounded on site as well as full capability to prepare drug extemporaneously, a common requirement for these early clinical trials. Other examples include the extensive laboratory areas for the processing of biomarkers, blood samples as well as strategic alliances for specialized testing.
