Our Services: Phase I Clinical Research

Premier Research Clinical Research Centers

​It’s all about leaving nothing to chance. Our clinical expertise, thorough regulatory department, and comprehensive recruitment practices enable the Premier Research Clinical Research Centers to consistently deliver clean reliable data and rapid patient enrollment. Our site management expertise allows your studies to be up and running quickly, resulting in expedited yet clean data. Our sites regularly handle the most scientifically demanding trials in a range of therapeutic areas.

​In-house investigators at our Clinical Research Centers in Austin, TX and Phoenix, AZ are highly respected, with over 20 scientific papers published over the past three years. All clinical staff is BLS certified, with several staff having ACLS certification to ensure participant safety. Board-certified physicians oversee the studies and provide expert medical attention to study participants. Both sites have extensive experience with ePRO and eCRFs.

Over 600 Trials Completed in 50 Indications+

Each site can perform rapid proof-of-concept, first in human, dose-ranging, single or multiple-dose studies; has private rooms, dormitory and extended stay capabilities; and can perform inpatient multiple- or single-day pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and bioequivalence studies across a wide range of indications—as well as studies that require multiple assessments such as spirometry and PK simultaneously, cardiac telemetry and echocardiography.

Our two sites can work smoothly together on larger studies; they both work under the exact same SOPs, and all clinical staff members receive exactly the same training.

Fast, Accurate Data+

Consistent patient evaluation is critical to accurate data collection, especially in areas such as analgesia, where data is mainly derived from subjective reports. Our Clinical Research Center personnel are trained in consistent evaluation and assessment techniques—leading to cleaner, clearer and more accurate data for informed program decisions and subsequent regulatory submissions.

Rapid, Reliable Recruitment+

Premier Research Clinical Research Centers have a 97% enrollment rate for high quality evaluable subjects. Our full-time recruiting staff has built a 21CFR Part 11 compliant database of 12,000 healthy subjects, and has established a sound reputation for taking good care of volunteers—30% of our subjects are referred by satisfied past participants. Our centers are situated for easy access to large, diverse populations that include pools of students at nearby colleges.

In addition to traditional recruitment methods—telephone, television, radio and print advertising, and a presence at local health fairs—we take full advantage of the internet and social media, including texting, craigslist, Google ads and Facebook.

Innovative Pain Models for Analgesia Studies+

The Analgesia Model Development Team at Premier Research has developed numerous proprietary pain models that have become industry standards. Our pain models deliver a high degree of scientific validity while addressing such practical considerations as rapid recruitment and reduction in the signal-to-noise ratio.

For example, successful development of the post-operative bunionectomy model has reduced patient recruitment times by 30–40%. It uses a small number of sites and provides assay sensitivity equal to or better than or equal to most existing post-operative surgical models.
