RESEARCH services company GVK Bio has joined hands with Research-Point Global (RPG), a global clinical organisation, in a tie-up that will provide RPG access to an extensive network of its proven investigative sites and country-specific regulatory, clinical and technical expertise. GVK Bio is now a new member of RPG.
"Through this, RPG is strategically expanding its global footprint with likeminded contract research organisations which have extensive drug development experience across a broad range of therapeutic areas. We look forward to leveraging GVK’s local knowledge for the benefit of our clients,” said Matt Walker, executive vice-president of marketing and business development with Research Point.
RPG’s expansion into India will further enhance advantages for running clinical trials taking into account the country’s large population, qualified medical personnel, and well-established regulations, according to the release. On the other hand, GVK Bio would complement RPG’s presence in the US, Europe (western, central and eastern) and Africa.
This partnership enables GVK Bio to participate in global trials while focusing on local investigators, recruitment and leveraging lower local costs. While both ResearchPoint Global and GVK Bio are full service contract research organisations offering services independently, together, we hope to offer faster patient recruitment and access to our complete suite of functional services including clinical data management, medical writing, and biostatistics,” said GVK Bio president Manni Kantipudi.
According to the Goldman Sachs Group, India presents an attractive region for clinical trials given a population of over one billion, a large number of English-speaking patients, and a well developed information technology industry.
RPG, which has a global foot print involves local resources to navigate regional issues and consists of high-performing teams whose principals are actively engaged in the success of each clinical programme while GVK Bio has a diverse portfolio of over 100 customers.
