PRA Health Sciences Works to Bring Drugs to Market to Improve Lives

Boca Raton FL, December 11, 2014 — Bringing drugs to market isn’t easy. It is time consuming, expensive and finding patients to participate in clinical trials can be a challenge. As a leading contract research organization (CRO), PRA Health Sciences (PRA) works side-by-side with clients to eliminate the lengthy wait and move drug discovery forward.  To learn more about PRA Health Sciences tune in to Bloomberg Worldwide (as pd. prog) on December 14, 2014 at 7:00am GMT. Check your local listings for airtimes. 

According to Kent Thoelke, PRA Executive Vice President of Scientific and Medical Affairs, pharmaceutical trials can last as long as a decade and cost over one billion dollars to complete. That’s a long wait for potentially life-improving and life-saving drugs. PRA is working to reduce the amount of time it takes to perform a clinical trial by finding new and innovative ways to improve the drug development process.

Patients are at the heart of every successful clinical study. Using novel strategies, PRA is able to identify qualified participants. The company is also vigilant in its efforts to ensure patient safety and the integrity of every study. According to Thoelke, success lies in remembering that each patient who participates in a study is somebody’s mother,  brother, or child.

“New drugs bring new cures,” says JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for 21st Century Television. “PRA Health Sciences is implementing pioneering strategies to help ensure much needed drugs get to market sooner. We salute that.”
