We are proud to announce that we have successfully implemented our fifth investment in this area, and at the same time, it is our third foreign one. In recent months, the NEUCA Group Pratia Research Site Network has started collaborating with over 50 hospital centers in Spain in the field of joint clinical trials. We currently employ nearly 60 coordinators in Spain supporting 250 research projects. We see great potential in using the synergy within the current site network, CROs, and technologies on the Spanish market - says Tomasz Dąbrowski, responsible for the clinical research business in the NEUCA Group.
Clinscience currently offers its clients a "full-service CRO", ranging from consulting for the development of new molecules and medical products, through design, monitoring and statistics. Its area of activity includes Poland, Germany, USA, Spain (Experior), France (Experior), UK, Netherlands (Experior), Portugal (Experior) and Italy (Experior), and the Benelux countries (Experior).
One of the main advantages of the NEUCA Clinical Trials area is state of the art technology which integrates both areas (SMO and CRO) in order to provide outstanding standard and quality of data in real time for Clinical Research Sponsors - biotechnology companies, which significantly reduces costs and time of project implementation. (NEUCA Group's investment in the technology was finalized in March this year as part of the Clinscience Technologies company setup).
- We have been present on the clinical trials market for many years and we have observed the acceleration of its development. Every year, the awareness of both doctors and patients concerning clinical trials and their benefits grows. They gain access to a comprehensive range of tests, diagnostics, and medical procedures, but also to innovative drugs and treatment methods, unavailable in standard medical treatment. The idea behind our everyday activities is to focus our attention on the patient, their safety and comfort, allowing for effective participation in clinical trial processes - explains Tomasz Dąbrowski, President of Clinscience.
