Our access to the most prominent Cardiology sites and Investigators ensures a large and diverse patient pool and leading lines of medical treatment. Historically, access to such a large group of patients from some of the countries leading cardiology researchers has resulted in achieving enrollment targets on time or ahead of schedule – Though, speed is never a substitute for our focus on quality and ethics. We ensure that clinical trials are conducted according to ICH – GCP guidelines and meet the highest standards of ethics and integrity.
