While most people only become aware of new medical techniques and devices once they have been brought to market, there is a vast amount of clinical research that goes into every single medical product approved for use (and even a large number of failed products we never hear about). At DeNova Research in Chicago, Illinois, our team has over 80 years of combined experience in clinical research, putting all of the resources of a full-service medical research facility at your company’s disposal.
Why Medical Research Facilities Are So Important
As mentioned above, every medical product that comes to market, whether it be a new procedure, a device, or a drug, must go through numerous rounds of clinical trials to prove its safety and efficacy prior to being approved. However, few companies possess the knowledge, skills, resources, or facilities to conduct full-scale, reliable clinical trials on their own. That’s where medical research facilities come in.
The quality, speed, and reliability of pre-market research, though often concealed from public view, play a crucial role in public health, ensuring that new medical technologies are properly vetted and proven safe before they are approved for release on the market. That’s why medical research facilities, which conduct these clinical trials, are a vital part of our healthcare system.
The Experience and Know-How to Get It Done
DeNova has produced over 200 clinical studies, more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, and has conducted over 330 research presentations globally. With all of this experience, we know as well as anyone the importance of medical research facilities in clinical trials, which is why we have put together this brief primer on how to conduct a clinical trial.
What Is a Medical Research Facility?
A medical research facility brings together the expertise, facilities, and patients necessary to conduct clinical trials and other research. Most companies–particularly smaller ones or start-ups–do not have the kind of capabilities in-house to conduct full-scale clinical research.
Bringing It All Together ‘Under One Roof’
In essence, a medical research facility is a one-stop-shop for companies needing to conduct clinical trials on new potential procedures, devices, and pharmaceuticals. This requires the medical and laboratory facilities necessary to actually conduct the research, experienced staff capable of managing and executing it all, and a sometimes overlooked but equally essential component: patients.
When it comes to a site dedicated to conducting medical research, it absolutely must have the facilities necessary to conduct high-quality, reliable clinical studies. At DeNova Research, our state-of-the-art facilities are specifically tailored to research the latest potential breakthroughs in the fields of aesthetic and cosmetic medicine.
In fact, our facilities go above and beyond those found at other research sites. We pride ourselves on being a one-stop-shop for all of your company’s research needs, helping you to get the results you need to get your product to market as safely and quickly as possible. We have the facilities necessary to conduct Phase II, III, and IV clinical trials in a variety of areas, including:
- Aesthetic and cosmetic medicine
- Facial plastic surgery
- General plastic surgery
Another vital component of any quality medical research facility is the staff. Without a staff knowledgeable in the specific area of medical research that you are seeking to investigate, all of the best equipment and facilities in the world are effectively useless.
That’s why at DeNova Research, we know that the core of our ability to serve our customers lies in our people. Our team members’ years of experience and dedication to the field of cosmetic medicine are what set us apart as a full-service research site for our clients.
An often overlooked yet equally essential part of medical research is the patients themselves. After all, who else will be the subjects of the clinical trials?
At DeNova Research, we pride ourselves on our strong patient recruitment and retention. And our numbers speak for themselves. In the past three years, we have actually surpassed our enrollment goals, reaching 119% of our patient target while maintaining an impressive 94% retention rate. Overall, we enrolled an astonishing 850 patients during that three-year span. These are numbers that other medical research facilities would love to be able to replicate.
