We are open for collaboration with CRO companies that do not have representation in Israel.
Israel is globally renowned as a leading innovator in medical development and quality healthcare. This fact is validated by the very respected and accomplished local medical community, high medical standards, and extensive international success for a multitude of pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.
Over the years, Israel has emerged as a popular site for conducting medical trials since it offers:
Easy investigator and patient recruitment in most therapeutic areas
Professional medical centers that meet the highest standards and regulatory criteria
A majority of multilingual GCP trained investigators, study staff and clinical site personnel
Support for Electronic Data Capturing (EDC) and other advanced technological tools
Short approval process cycles
Reduced study costs as compared with Europe and North America
Full patient coverage by the national social security system
Many international pharmaceutical companies repeatedly sponsor clinical trials in Israel. They report efficiency, well managed timelines and generally lower costs compared to Western Europe and the USA.
TCA Clinical Research Ltd. is ideally positioned, with long-standing investigator relationships throughout the country, as well as deep familiarity with regional medical centers, procedures and language. Our excellent and trusted local reputation ensures faster and cost-effective results.
What is a CRO?
A CRO is an independent organization that provides defined research services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries to help answer their specific health or scientific questions. A CRO is fully focused on the clinical trials process, usually entering the development process once a client has identified a promising new molecule or prototype. The CRO will then activate their extensive expertise and professional network in this field to organize, conduct and evaluate clinical trials and provide an objective assessment in a clinical setting.
TCA Clinical Research Limited delivers an entire team of proven professionals with specialist research capabilities. Making use of the wide range of TCA services involves much less risk, cost and time-to-completion than applying the client’s own internal resources and staff. What’s more, many research projects may demand particular areas of experience, skills and access to resources that are either scarce or absent in the client’s organization or region. TCA saves clients significant resources when analyzing regional and even site-specific trial feasibility, as well as contributing a deep insight into local site, investigator, patient recruitment and regulatory practices.
Our extensive network, experience and training covering a vast range of therapeutic areas provides specialist knowledge that ensures your project’s outcome is successful. Added to this we assess every project for early identification and resolution of any elements or procedures that could delay or hinder the trials’ implementation and smooth operation.
