Early Phase

Pierrel Research offers clinical pharmacology services in three Phase I Units located in Romania. Their experts warrant that studies are carried out safely and effectively in accordance to GCP.

Pierrel Research offers clinical pharmacology services in three Phase I Units located in Romania (Timisoara and Arad). An interdisciplinary team of experts warrants that studies are carried out safely and effectively in accordance to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) requirements for a wide range of research fields.

Pierrel Research provides professionally conducted human Phase I, early Phase II and bioequivalence studies on up to 64 in-patients in parallel. They can test compounds and devices in healthy volunteers, patients, and special populations. Working closely with General Practitioners and Specialists, Pierrel Research have always been able to meet the criteria for subject recruitment and to deliver timely results and high quality data.

Pierrel Research staff is trained in ICH-GCP, basic and advanced life support, and national legislation, regulations and requirements for clinical studies.
