Clinical Trials Support is a leading Contract Research Organization in Latin America, one of the leading regions for clinical trials outsourcing. Its proprietary list of Investigator Sites on goBalto is listed under “Sourced by Clinical Trials Support.” The “Sourced by” designation indicates that Clinical Trials Support has identified these Investigator Sites to be actively operating in Latin America and that information about these sites is maintained in its database. Over 950 of the Investigator Sites listed on goBalto have been reviewed to date.
“We’re delighted that Clinical Trials Support, a leading Clinical Research Organization in Latin America, has agreed to make its proprietary list available to the goBalto community,” said Jae Chung, founder and CEO of goBalto. “Interfacing Clinical Trials Support’s list to our platform enables users to more quickly and easily evaluate the leading Investigator Sites in the region and become informed about the exciting, high-growth Latin American market.”
“For Clinical Trial Support it is very important to be in goBalto’s website so that our information can be made available for CROs and laboratories willing to perform clinical trials in Chile. Research in our country is growing, the sites and investigators are highly-qualified, and though we are a little country, the sites usually reach their patient targets, and regulatory timelines are smaller than other Latin-American countries” said CTS CEO, Carlos Caceres.
Latin America is one of the pharmaceutical markets with the biggest growth rates in the world. It represents approximately 30% of the global pharmaceutical market. The advantages of Latin America as a place to perform clinical trials are confirmed by hundreds of ongoing and successfully performed trials.
