RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 11 PRA International, a leadingClinical Research Organization, announces the opening of a new office inMexico City, Mexico. With years of long-standing South American operations,PRA entered the Mexico market in 2005. The region's existing base of clinicalsites with expertise in oncology, cardiovascular, CNS and infectious diseasesmatch favorably to PRA's therapeutic focus. The expansion is alsoadvantageous for PRA and its clients given Mexico's reliable regulatorytimelines and the ability to run placebo trials.
The new PRA location provides proximity to the large population center ofMexico City, easy access to the Ministry of Health, and the ability to overseetrials in Central America. The facility is home to more than 20 clinicalstaff, with room to expand to nearly 50 as trial volume in the regionincreases.
"We are pleased to formalize our operations in Mexico with a newfacility," commented Charles Schmidt, Senior Director of Operations for LatinAmerica. "Mexico is a country with a strong tradition in clinical trials. Itwill also help open the door for further expansion into Central America."
