MedPharmics has sites located in Metairie, Louisiana; Phoenix, Arizona; Gulfport, Mississippi; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Mobile, Alabama; Covington, Louisiana; Lafayette, Louisiana; and Slidell, Louisiana. All sites are strategically located in large metropolitan areas and have easy access to municipal airports and ample hotel accommodations. In the unlikely event of a medical emergency, nurses and physicians have appropriate emergency training and access to resuscitative equipment and medications. All sites are also in close proximity to a hospital with ER facilities. We have an inpatient unit at our central site in Louisiana with plans to open a second inpatient unit in Mississippi. For this reason, we are able to conduct trials for drugs in all stages of development – Phase I through Phase IV. All sites can address a wide range of clinical indications including vaccines, women’s health, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, congestive heart failure, COPD, cigarette smoking, and migraines. Because practicing physicians are a key component at each site, we are able to develop extensive, databases of reliable subjects. Because contracts and budgets are negotiated through our central office, the sponsor’s administrative work is streamlined and costs are thereby reduced. Oversight and uniformity of all sites are maintained by frequent visits of senior staff, including a quality assurance specialist.
Visiting clinical research associates are provided a quiet, private room with access to internet service, copying machine, and fax.
