Clinical trials are an essential tool of clinical pharmacology to evaluate the kinetics, safety, pharmacological effect,
efficacy and therapeutic effectiveness of drugs.
The activities carried out in this area are aimed at achieving three complementary objectives:
- To support clinical research in the field of Vall d'Hebron Hospital University (HUVH) and primary care.
- Evaluating clinical trial protocols submitted to the Ethics Committee for Clinical Research of Vall d'Hebron Hospital University (HUVH) .
- Develop own and in collaboration with other centers and institutions clinical trials.
- Advice, through the Unit Methodological Support for Biomedical Research (USMIB), clinical investigators HUVH wishing to conduct clinical drug trials in the methodological, administrative, legal and practical aspects related to the design, processing and analysis of the studies (population selection, calculation of the size of the sample, randomized, measurement variables, statistical aspects, administrative procedures, information to participants, need insurance, etc.).
- Thorough review of the pharmacological, methodological and ethical aspects of clinical trial protocols submitted to the Ethics Committee for Clinical Research (CEIC).
