The Clinical Studies Center at MedVet is designed to facilitate completion of high quality clinical trials in client-owned dogs and cats. The Clinical Studies Center can assist you in your development efforts, from pilot investigations through multicenter GCP pivotal efficacy studies.
Dr. Michael Lucroy, a board certified veterinary oncologist, serves as the director of the Clinical Studies Center. Dr. Lucroy brings his many years of experience in pharma R&D and academic research to the Clinical Studies Center. Edna Moore is the Clinical Studies Coordinator with extensive experience in managing and intenrally monitoring GCP studies. Together they work with the Clinical Investigative Teams at our multiple hospitals to insure all aspects of a Clinical Study at MedVet run seamlessly from study start-up, patient recruitment, data collection, site monitor or regulatory agency visits, to study close-out steps.
MedVet’s clinical investigative teams have successfully completed single center and multi-center clinical studies evaluating diagnostic tests, pharmaceuticals, biologics, surgical procedures, and medical devices for acute and chronic pain, congestive heart failure and other cardiac diseases, osteoarthritis and other orthopedic diseases, cancer, seizure disorders, endocrine diseases, ophthalmologic conditions, and chronic skin diseases.
Our strength lies in our ability to recruit a large number of qualified patients in a short period of time. With an integrated system of 11 specialty and emergency hospitals, we have a large and varied caseload of over 100,000 patients annually. We are also fortunate to have a referral network of over 3,000 veterinarians. Our large, supportive referral base values the role clinical trials play in helping their current and future patients, and is readily available to our Clinical Investigative Teams.
MedVet’s Clinical Studies Center has worked with a variety of sponsors, from industry to private foundations, and work to be both flexible and creative to foster good working relationships. We strive to insure the highest quality clinical study can be completed in a timely fashion and in compliance with all standards of current Good Clinical Practice (GCP / VICH GL9) guidelines.
