Trials4patients Richmond Pharmacology volunteer recruitment

Richmond Pharmacology

Trials4patients are part of Richmond Pharmacology Ltd - the UK's largest Phase I & II Clinical Research Organisation (CRO), and the only one based in 2 NHS Teaching Hospitals.

Every prescription and over-the-counter medicine has to go through 4 phases of controlled testing:

Phase I
the earliest trials carried out with a small group of volunteers to establish a dosage range for the medicine and see how healthy bodies absorb the new treatment.
Phase II
research with patients who have the condition for which the new medicine is being developed.
Phase III
tests how well the medicine works on a much larger group of patients.
Phase IV
reviews how effective the medicine is in improving the quality of life for sufferers.

Trials4patients works with Phase II volunteers.
