Preclinical & Clinical Studies

ELC Group works with a first-class network of validated clinical research organisations (CROs) to provide expert experience, skills and knowledge to take pharmaceutical products from concept through to distribution. We offer independent oversight and project management at each stage of development by providing the client with an end-to end service model, thereby accelerating the overall clinical development phase of a drug or a device.

Early phase and BA/BE studies

  • Phase-I studies .i.e. First-in-Human / First-in-Patient, and Healthy Volunteer Studies
  • PK/PD studies
  • Drug-Drug Interaction Studies
  • SAD/MAD studies
  • Food Effect Studies
  • Special Population (like Hepatic and renal impairment studies)
  • Bioequivalence/bioavailability studies

Our comprehensive bioavailability (BA) and bioequivalence (BE) studies service incorporates regulatory consulting, protocol design, ethics committee submissions, a clinical pharmacology unit, and bio analytical testing. We also offer expertise in clinical study management, method development and validation, PK analysis, statistical analysis and report writing. Our centers are approved by all major regulatory agencies.

Phase II to Phase IV and PMS studies

We enable every aspect of the clinical trials study process, including:

  • study feasibility
  • site and investigator selection
  • site monitoring
  • oversight of clinical operations
  • clinical trial supply management
  • vendor management
  • independent audit

We can also offer a customized service which can be delivered on a standalone basis or as part of an integrated full-service offering.

GCP Audit 

The primary objectives of GCP quality audits are to ensure that the rights of trial subjects are respected (as per the Declaration of Helsinki) and that the integrity of the trial data can be assured. Sponsors of clinical trials are expected to implement quality systems and processes with procedures that assure the quality of every aspect of the trial, and these systems and processes are subject to regular audit.

Routine audits of clinical trials can be scheduled during any phase of development and at any time during the conduct of the trial.

Scope of GCP Audits

  • Investigator Site
  • BE / Clinical Study CRO
  • Third party service provider
    • Clinical trial central pathology laboratory
    • Investigational product depot/supplier
    • IWRS/IVRS service provider
