The Centre of Clinical Pharmacology (CFC) is a resource qualified to work closely with Pharmaceutical Industry in all the different phases of drug development.
The main area of activity is the performance of bioavailability/bioequivalence studies in human healthy volunteers to assess the efficacy and safety of drugs. CFC can be responsible for the elaboration of protocols and other documents needed for these studies, the organization of all documents to regulatory authorities submission and the development of specific analytical methods for the drugs quantification.
CFC has been collaborating with BIAL conducting clinical studies for their R&D Department. This has been recently strengthened with 2 new study requests.
Regarding human resources, CFC has a coordinator, a study director and three laboratory technicians/study-coordinators. 15 consultants medical doctors, one pharmacist and three nurses who collaborate in the clinical trials performed by CFC.
CFC is equipped with the most up-to-date and suitably calibrated equipment for the development and validation of analytical methods in order to ensure precision and quality of the results presented.
All CFC's activities are performed according to Good Laboratory Practices (certification since 1999 by INFARMED for the performance of bioavailability/bioequivalence and pharmacokinetic studies), Good Clinical Practices and ISO 9001 Guidelines.
