Extensive Phase I-IV experience
We have Phase I-IV experience in a variety of therapeutic areas in almost all European countries.
Our regulatory managers work to guarantee that every aspect of the trial is correctly designed for regulatory approval.
From Phase I, all the way through to Phase IV, you can be feel safe in the knowledge that your study is performed under high-quality standards. Our therapeutic experts, project managers, and CRAs certify that your study will be running without delays in a cost-efficient way.
Neox is here to provide services at any stage of drug development in any European country. We aim to exceed your expectations.
High performance quality starts with clear standard procedures, detailing training processes for both onboarding and continuous training.
Specific role-based curricula are in place for all key job roles.
The training process includes:
- ICH GCP and clinical trials training
- Practical on-site training for CRAs
- Neox SOPs training
- Sponsor processes training
- Therapeutic area and other project-specific trainings
- Periodic advanced trainings
- Periodic on-site co-monitoring for CRAs
The new-hire onboarding programme is led by a Neox trainer and internal speakers.
The theoretical part of the training is followed by a practical on-site monitoring training specific for CRAs.
Training on relevant Neox SOPs is completed by each Neox employee. Training on sponsor SOPs, systems and project-specific trainings are provided according to sponsor instructions.
Therapeutic area and investigational product trainings are typically provided by the Neox medical director, if agreed by the sponsor. For periodical advanced training, both internal and external speakers may be invited.
Quality of service is also supervised through periodical on-site co-monitoring visits and internal audits.
Where we are - We go where the patients are
Years of clinical research experience, understanding local requirements and established relationships with investigators, ensures that your trial will always be performed in an optimal setting for high patient enrolment.
Neox operates in Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In other European countries we operate through our partners.
The total population of the Central and Eastern European region exceeds 300million, providing access to a large pool of potential clinical trial subjects. The healthcare systems in the CEE region are highly centralised, as most patients are referred to major centres where they always visit the same doctor. This results in a strong personal relationship between patients and their doctors. These factors have an additional positive impact on data quality through better patient compliance, faster and easier patient enrolment and lower dropout rates even in long-term trials.
With Neox you will experience rapid enrolment and you will have access to leading, highly motivated investigators. Although investigator fees in Central and Eastern European region are increasing and falling into line with those of Western Europe, the overall costs in the CEE region still remain lower due to faster patient recruitment, a larger number of enrolled patients, and high quality of data resulting in lower data query rates.
