Why Choose Us?
Responsibility – Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is at the heart of all human research. The protection of human subjects is the paramount concern and responsibility of all involved in clinical trials. Albuquerque Clinical Trials (ACT) is committed to GCP and evolving with regulatory and cultural standards and values. This includes adherence to the protocol, an ethical informed consent discussion, and clear and available policies and procedures. We develop strong work relationships with sponsors and their representatives. This stems from prompt correspondence, data entry and resolution of queries, as well as availability – we are a 10 minute drive from the Albuquerque airport and close to many historic and affordable hotels. All of our studies are overseen by senior study coordinators who are certified by the Association of Clinical Research Professionals. Our PI’s have also achieved certification. Please visit our facilities tab for more details.
Recruitment – Sponsors expect sites to efficiently recruit study participants. We are allied with a busy private clinic, Rio Grande Family Medicine (RGFM), and also maintain a separate study database of over 5,000 potential subjects. We have extensive marketing experience and contacts with many New Mexican media sources. We promise a one-week turnaround on regulatory and contract start-up.
Retention – After over 20 years of conducting trials, we know that retention is equally important as recruitment. We take extra time to make sure patients are educated properly on compliance, whether with diaries, questionnaires, or medication use. Our investigators are committed and actively-involved in every study. They devote themselves to ensuring not only patient safety and eligibility, but also scientifically-sound evaluation of adverse events.
