Vince & Associates Clinical Research, a provider of early phase clinical research services to the global biopharmaceutical industry, has expanded its capabilities in the gastrointestinal (GI) therapeutic area with the addition of a dedicated endoscopy suite at its Clinical Pharmacology Unit.
"Vince & Associates Clinical Research has successfully conducted a number of studies evaluating potential therapies in patients with gastrointestinal disorders. To supplement ongoing research, VACR has established an endoscopy suite to offer on-site access to a wide range of endoscopic procedures," said Dr. Brad Vince, chief executive officer and medical director.
The suite is equipped with advanced and minimally invasive video endoscopy technology from Olympus EndoTherapy. Procedures can be viewed remotely on a large screen and documented by video or still photography. The suite includes two sources of suction as well as resuscitation and medication stations to address patient safety and equipment is maintained at the purpose built disinfection station.
Vince & Associates has reached out to Summit Gastroenterology for its medical expertise to complement the new research capabilities. The board certified gastroenterologists have been asked to join the Vince & Associates’ clinical research team as investigators, bringing clinical experience as GI specialists.
