Clinical Study Center of Asheville is dedicated to conducting clinical trials for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and device companies. Our services provide Asheville and neighboring communities with an opportunity to participate in clinical trials. All studies conducted by the Center are FDA (Food and Drug Administration) monitored and approved by an Institutional Review Board for the safety and protection of our volunteers.
Clinical Study Center of Asheville acts as a liaison between the Pharmaceutical Companies (Sponsors), and patients/volunteers. Our staff is committed to pursuing the advancement of medicine and medical technology for the sick, dying, and those looking for preventative therapies. Our Center conducts clinical trials under the direct supervision of physicians and qualified-trained research staff that provide excellent care to patients participating in studies. Because medical care is directly related to the purpose of the study, patients must continue all other medical care with their Primary Care Physician.
Clinical trial is the scientific term for a test or study of a drug or medical device in people. These tests are done to see if the product is safe and effective for people to use. Doctors and other health professionals run the tests according to strict rules set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA sets the rules to make sure that people who agree to be in the studies are treated as safely as possible.
Clinical trials generate new knowledge about a potential medicine so that regulatory authorities can determine whether the medicine is safe and effective. Although this is our primary purpose, participants themselves often benefit from the medicine being tested and/or the care received.
