COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- WCCT Global, a full service CRO headquartered in Orange

County, CA, will be featured in an upcoming publication regarding successful results from asthma clinical research conducted at their Phase I-IV Costa mesa clinical pharmacology unit. Over the years, this CPU has conducted numerous asthma clinical
trials in patients, special populations, and healthy volunteers, and was thus well-equipped to host this successful program. In addition to this, and for every study hosted at one of WCCT's multiple clinical research sites, WCCT assigns a board-certified specialist to serve as either the primary or sub investigator for the program, certified in whichever therapeutic area is pertinent to that study.

This asthma clinical research program was a Phase I study in pediatric asthma patients. As a single site, WCCT enrolled 15 patients; there were no other sites involved in the study. The results of this study will be published in an upcoming edition of Allergy and Asthma Proceedings, with study title "Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of albuterol multidose dry powder inhaler and albuterol hydrofluoroalkane in asthmatic children." The overall purpose of the study was to help develop easier-to-use treatment options for children with asthma.

When asked about the company's role in this asthma clinical research program, WCCT CEO and Founder Dr. Kenneth Kim, had this to say: "The foundation of this company was built upon the successful conduct and enrollment of asthma clinical trials, and it is always a pleasure to go back to our roots and continue to make contributions to this field of study. While WCCT has expanded much since our early days, spanning multiple therapeutic areas and indications, there is perhaps no therapeutic area for which we are better equipped to conduct research at our multiple Southern California facilities than asthma." In addition to its Phase I-IV CPU, WCCT also owns and operates a clinic dedicated to asthma and allergy patients in Long Beach, CA, where additional research is performed.
