CEC // Centre for Clinical Trials


The Clinical Trial Centre (CEC) performs randomized clinical trials with special emphasis on ophthalmology.

The Clinical Trial Centre (CEC) performs randomized clinical trials with special emphasis on ophthalmology. CEC has dedicated facilities and updated ophthalmological equipment.

Clinical patient-oriented research involves characterizing disease progression and testing new discoveries by carrying out carefully controlled research studies in patients, i. e., clinical trials. This includes testing not only new drugs, but also new methods, devices, imaging and surgical procedures as well as well-designed prospective, observational, longitudinal studies.

Our research is focused in age-related eye diseases with special emphasis on diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.

CEC is certified as Clinical Site of Excellence by the EVICR.net - European Vision Institute Clinical Research Network (Clinical Site nº 1), that is a clinical trial centre in ophthalmology that complies with ICH GCP Guidelines with written SOPs, has the necessary equipment and personnel to perform clinical trials and has proven expertise and scientific publications in this area

Areas of expertise

Retina:
