Regulatory – The regulatory specialist processes the start-up paperwork in under a week and works diligently to maintain all regulatory documents throughout the study.
Business Development – In a team effort, the principal investigator and study coordinators are aided in study enrollment and recruitment through the work of the business development staff. Our team members work diligently to pursue all avenues of patient recruitment and help Paragon Rx Clinical to frequently exceed enrollment standards set by study sponsors.
Clinical Research Coordinators – Study coordinators work under the direction of the PI in the overall, day-to-day management of clinical trials. All staff members have current GCP training, IATA/DOT and NIH certification and documentation.
Through our dedicated patient base, our extensive area network and the strong local population density, PRxC has access to a large and diverse patient population. California State University Fullerton and University of California Irvine are located here in Orange County and enable enrollment from a younger population; and, at the same time, Orange County is home to a large number of retirees over the age of 65. Patient enrollment comes from our own patient database, physician referral, advertising (TV, radio, print, internet), direct mail and community relations (health screenings and event promotion).
Paragon Rx Clinical uses sponsor-preferred central IRBs. The following is a list of IRBs this site has previously used:
- New England
- Schulman Associates
Paragon Rx Clinical also has access to local laboratories if needed, including Consolidated Medical Bio-Analysis.
