Office for Clinical Trials
The Office for Clinical Trials supports the conduct of investigational new drug (IND) registration trials, including sponsored and investigator-initiated trials. More than 160 IND trials, including 30-40 trials newly contracted every year, are being conducted constantly at our facility. Our hospital is one of the top clinical trial-conducting hospitals in Japan. The rate of patients that are actually treated compared to the total number of presenting patients is around 90%, which is extremely high.
Our office staff consist of 17 qualified Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs; 3 pharmacists and 14 nurses) and 7 support staff. More than 60% of the trials are global studies, and we have created an advanced system capable of responding to audits or inspections from regulatory authorities both in Japan and overseas.
The accuracy and speed of CRCs’ efforts are highly esteemed and trusted by the sponsors, and many of our CRCs have received awards for their work.
