Discover our Research Medical Center and become a volunteer
Biotrial has been headquartered in France since 1989 and has offices in the United Kingdom and Canada. The company’ s medical research centers benefit from a strong reputation with the main global players in pharmaceutical research.
Since 2017, Biotrial Inc. has been conducting clinical trials in Newark, NJ, near New York City. Our Research Medical Center is a top-notch facility, high-tech, secure, and close to cities in the Tri-State area.
In Newark, we carry out clinical trials mainly in healthy volunteers. With experience gained from over 30 years of activity, our team strives to provide our paid volunteers with the highest quality service.
Our values are integrity and professionalism, safety and transparency. Our clinical trials volunteers’ safety is our number one priority. We are also committed to transparency and privacy.
At Biotrial we comply with strict and demanding health and ethical standards. Our clinical tests are conducted according to principles and standards globally referred to as “Good Clinical Research Practice” (GCP).
Biotrial, a Medical Research Center for Phase 1 clinical trials
Clinical trials for new drugs are divided into three phases. A phase 1 clinical trial tests the safety and tolerability of a new treatment (side effects, best dose, and timing) on healthy humans. Biotrial Inc. currently carries mainly Phase 1 clinical trials. Our clinical research institute also tests innovative medical devices such as connected T-shirts, helmets, etc.
Strictly Supervised Clinical Tests
In the United States, the Federal government has set stringent regulations and guidelines for clinical research. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the authority that regulates clinical investigations of medical products.
The FDA works to protect participants in clinical trials and ensure that people have reliable information before deciding whether to join a clinical trial. The studies protocols are approved by the FDA and by the US Ethics Committee, also called IRB for Institutional Review Board.
Main requirements to undertake a clinical trial in humans
- The Food and Drug Administration gives authorization to conduct to a clinical trial in humans only if laboratory tests and studies in animals have shown favorable results.
- Clinical research trials must first be approved by an institutional review board (IRB). An IRB is a committee that has been formally designated to review and monitor biomedical research involving human subjects.
Your Safety Comes First
At Biotrial, the volunteers’ safety is our first priority.
Our volunteers benefit from medical examinations before, during and after any clinical study. Our principal investigators always carefully follow the studies protocols.
To ensure the safety of the participants of our clinical trials, we don’t allow them to enroll in more than a clinical trial. Participating simultaneously in several trials can put a volunteer at serious risk because of the unknown interaction between drugs. It could also seriously hamper the integrity of clinical trials. To avoid these risks, Biotrial uses fingerprint verification at the start of the screening visit.
Transparency is key
We ensure full transparency to our volunteers. We are committed to providing accurate and precise medical information from the screening visit throughout the trial.
The first step of the screening visit is to receive the informed consent of our volunteers. It consists of a meeting with the Principal Investigator (MD, NP) or their delegate (trained recruiter). The goal of the meeting is to communicate precisely about each clinical trials and answer any questions that volunteers may have.The informed consent is a crucial step as it creates trust between doctor and paid volunteers by ensuring a good understanding.
Your privacy is protected
Our volunteers’ privacy is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1966 (HIPAA). This Law requires that individual participants’ information, including medical information, remains confidential.
