There are many steps to take before a clinical trial can get underway, and one of the most important things to do is to find the right site management organization (SMO). With this organization by their side, sponsors and CROs will have experts who will assist them with site identification and initiation, patient recruitment and enrollment, protocol writing, data collection and management, and even data analysis. As a result, the clinical trials can flow smoothly and efficiently with minimal errors and downtime.
Sponsors and CROs nowadays have numerous SMOs to choose from. However, those who want to have access to high-quality solutions will want to work with the National Institute of Clinical Research (NICR). We can confidently say that we offer the best clinical trial services since we have the following on our side:
Years of experience
Older isn’t automatically better but, when it comes to clinical trials, it’s always prudent to work with an experienced site management organization since they have more to offer in terms of quality and efficiency. NICR has been doing nephrology research for 25 years, and we have definitely learned a lot during these two and a half decades. We apply our knowledge and skills to the clinical trials we manage, ensuring we meet not just the requirements of the sponsor or CRO but also of the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A team of medical and clinical trial experts
Here at NICR, we have a strong team of investigators, research coordinators, and study nurses who have years of experience in conducting and managing clinical trials. All of them are knowledgeable about the guidelines set by the FDA and strictly adhere to standard protocol and Good Clinical Practices (GCPs). The knowledge and experience of these experts help NICR put our best foot forward.
Site Management Organization network of affiliates
Over the years, NICR has developed strong relationships with some of the best physicians, clinics, laboratories, dialysis centers, and consultants in California, Nevada, and Texas. These relationships, in turn, have allowed us to build an extensive network of professionals who can help us in conducting clinical trials in a smooth and efficient way.
Access to thousands of patients
One of the biggest challenges of holding a clinical trial is looking for the right subjects. However, this isn’t a problem for those who decide to work with NICR. Our years of experience in the field as well as our large network of affiliates give us access to thousands of potential subjects. Specifically, we can connect sponsors and CROs to around 3,000 dialysis patients and more than 10,000 patients with end-stage renal disease.
A Phase One Lab
Aside from partnering with independent laboratories through our site management organization, NICR has its own Phase One Lab located in Santa Ana, California. Our lab is equipped with the best medical and security facilities, making it easy for our nurses and researchers to manage clinical trials, collect data, and ensure the health and safety of the study participants. The lab is just several feet away from a hospital, giving us access to excellent emergency care if needed.
With these in mind, it’s easy to see why the National Institute of Clinical Research is one of the premier clinical research organization nephrology. Call us today to learn more about our services and find out how we can help you.
