SGS Clinical Research strengthens its consultancy service to accelerate drugs through early phase development

Company consolidates its consultancy portfolio into a single, comprehensive offering.

SGS clinical research has strengthened its early phase drug development services by consolidating its consultancy portfolio into a single, comprehensive offering. Primarily aimed at small and medium-sized biotechnology and spin-off companies, this broad-reaching service will be able to support companies through designing a focused strategy, and bringing compounds from the non-clinical to the clinical phase of development.

“Increasingly we are finding smaller innovator companies that are seeking impartial and in-depth advice on drug development, and how to progress a drug candidate through the crucial clinical phases in the most expedient manner,” commented Bruno Speder, Head Clinical Regulatory Affairs & Consultancy who will head up the department within SGS. “At SGS, we can establish a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of qualified regulatory, toxicology, pharmacology, therapeutic and biometric experts, who can assess projects and provide guidance to clients on how to reach a go or no-go decision safer and faster.”

“SGS always aims to support its clients in anticipating and managing risks, and in making the decisions which can ensure projects have the best opportunity of getting to market and securing a return on investment,” added Wim van Loon, Managing Director, SGS Benelux. “By bringing together our experts in a single, dedicated offering, we can look to offer assessments at this crucial stage of drug development, which give clients the best advice to facilitate the optimal clinical trial set up and predicted outcome.”
