Center Overview

FXM Research is a privately owned and operated Clinical Research Site that conducts phase II, III, and IV clinical research trials specializing in Dermatology and Aesthetics/Cosmetics. Throughout the years, our ability to deliver aggressive, time bound enrollment goals, while providing trustworthy data to Pharmaceutical companies and CROs, has earned FXM Research a great deal of notoriety and fame within the Dermatology research industry.

Today, FXM Research’s success is widely regarded throughout our four operating branches: FXM Research Corp., based in Miami, Florida and home of our headquarters, FXM Research Miramar, located in the city of Miramar, Florida and FXM Research International, including two branches in Belize City, Central America.

At the core of our business and operating systems, FXM Research mission is to support pharmaceutical companies and CROs with introducing new and approved FDA medications successfully into the marketplace. We perform this efficiently and effectively by providing the highest quality service in a timely fashion and at the lowest possible cost.

  • Our primary concerns are subject safety and adherence to the protocol.
  • Turnover time for Regulatory Documents, budgets, and contracts is usually 24 to 48 hours.
  • We offer experienced, trained, and bilingual personnel (English and Spanish), who interact with our subjects, sponsors, and CROs as a cohesive team.
  • Our Principal Investigators are Board Certified Dermatologists and Certified Clinical Research Investigators with many years of extensive experience. They are located on-site and are available full-time.
  • Our Principal Investigators evaluate each and every study subject.
  • Most subjects are recruited through advertising and from the office of our Phi’s private practice, and/or FXM Research's extensive clinical database. We draw heavily from a Spanish speaking population, a group often under-represented in clinical trials.
  • We also have continuing extensive experience with a pediatric population.
  • We do whatever is necessary to accommodate our subjects' school and/or work schedule, which maximizes compliance and retention.

Facility Description

Patient Demographics

We are always ranked among the highest enrolling sites in trials we participate in. This is
because of our extensive patient/subject database. Our patient/subject database consists of all patients treated in Dr. Wiltz’ private practice, as well as, FXM’s own subject database.

Our patient/subject target population consists of the following and includes males and females of all age groups:

57% Hispanic
21% Caucasian
19% African American
1% Asian
2% Other

Our subjects give us several reasons why they decide to participate in our Clinical Research studies. The ones they most often mention are:

  • To help in the development of new medications that may offer better treatment or even
    cures for chronic diseases.
  • The availability of diagnostic tests and medical evaluation of a particular disease or medical condition without worrying about the cost.
  • The Hope for a new approach or treatment that finally offers some relief. For all subjects' database management, we comply with privacy and confidentiality of all HIPAA regulations.
