Covance unveils ‘premier clinical research base’

31st July 2008

Covance has upgraded its clinical pharmacology research unit in the US state of Indiana.

The contract research organisation’s multi-million pound facility, located in Evansville, is described as a premier clinical research base for conducting first-in-human studies and other complex trials which require special attention.

Mary Westrick, the vice-president and general manager of global clinical pharmacology for Covance, said the completion of the 50,000 square-foot facility caps a two-year investment programme which included upgraded facilities for clinical research units in Texas, Florida and Hawaii.

"Our new clinic is truly a top-tier research facility," she continued.

"In addition to our experienced medical team on-site, we can now provide our clients and patients with the safety of around-the-clock emergency response, including Code Blue, from Deaconess Hospital."

According to Ms Westrick, the unit features a pharmacy for sterile compounding, a large on-site laboratory for the immediate turnaround of human lab samples and a hospital-like audible emergency-call system for patient safety.

Covance, which offers early-stage testing at ten clinical sites across the UK and the US, is said to be one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive drug development services companies.ADNFCR-1050-ID-18709514-ADNFCR
